Alone is Home

Alone is Home

Safe in the shadows of the world

Hoping to be invisible to all that is around

Eventually quietness surrounds her soul

 Soon the sadness from the past comes flooding in

Memories rise back to the surface

Those she thought were buried long ago

They cannot be forgotten and shouldn’t be remembered

Pain left unhealed, wounds left still bleeding

Scars of yesterday gradually fading away

Only to reappear tomorrow the same as they were today

Wishing the future would soon appear

Because happiness awaits in that far horizon

In which the sun has secretly already set in

It feels so far away, yet it is so near

She feels powerless and unable to change a thing

Agony starts building up inside her mind

Suffocating the present moment

Drowning her with mixed emotions creating her personal apocalypse

Knowing only one can save her from herself

To rescue her from this place she visits too often

This place of emptiness, this state of being alone

This place that is starting to feel a lot like her home

A poem I wrote when I was having thoughts about my past relationships. I wanted my ex to be the one to take away all the pain but now I know that I was always the only one who could rescue myself from the emptiness.
