Homesick

Places and people

Homesick

Homesick

i like familiar things.

i like knowing all the local diners

and coffee shops

and the best places to get pizza.

i like knowing every road

that leads to the same place

and every park that the kids

hangout.

i like going to wawa at 3 am for fun

on a tuesday night

even though we need to be up early

wednesday morning

i like the comfort of people

i've known the longest

and the people who knew me the most

but didn't really know me at all.

my closest friends

have always been

my biggest haters

but they're familiar.

and until i can stop being homesick

i will continue to loudly love

the ones who hate me

in secret.
