Home isn't home anymore


How you reach out
To the day
When you finally can come home

The day before your return
Saying goodbye
You could handle the world
You are happy

The night before your return
You lie in bed
Feeling miserable
You understand

You understand
Your home isn't home anymore
You don't feel happy
At the place they call home

You don't look forward
Because this place called home
Makes you want to stay away
As long as possible

This place called home
Makes you sick

Your lovely home
Has turned in to a place
Where all your demons
Rest

    i'm sure this has meaning for you. well-written. the only suggestion is to look at Has turned in to a place.
    thanks for sharing. i thought, as i read this, that the person was about to be released from a prison or hospital.
    :) there's no place like home, unfortunately, does not always ring true! (Report) Reply

    You have successfully described a home overtaken by demons. You've taken the readers with you. While we pray this kind of situation doesn't happen to our worst enemies, we should also guard ourselves against any complacence or any faltering from our side. (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
