A lonely empty shelf

Photo by Scott Webb on Unsplash

The walls are barren

Old wallpaper, Empty shelves, books in a box

The want for home seeping through

The words from the stories I grew up reading

The lines from movies,

the tales my mind spun

All running down the bedroom walls but yet not sticking

Will this ever be home I wonder?

A closed door

An unmade bed

Living with people but yet not relating

Feeling for people but still feeling unfelt

A missing connection

So many thoughts

Will they ever stop long enough for me to decipher what I truly want?

A fog that keeps on expanding

Me, searching in the abyss for something more

The sense of time escaping me

Like a train running of track

Will I ever catch the feeling that is home?
