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

    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

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
