Home - Poem

Home
The magic of a single word

Home
Warmth in the coldest of days,
A light in the dark
And darkness when the world is too bright it hurts your eyes

Home
My personal space:
A reading corner,
A cup of hot chocolate or mocha

Home
Where no prying eyes seek you out of the crowd,
Where you can shut the door and let silence reign

Here I stand,
A lone soul in a vast expanse with no colour,
A destiny that seems to have left me,
Looking right and left
My eyes see nothing.
I stand here,
A person with the no name and soon to be eternally forgotten,

A person longing for home.
