Heart engulfed in pain,
Despair and pity,
Bump my head against the ceiling,
It was time to leave my City.
How do I breathe? I feel stagnant.
Uninspired, slowly dying; I’m praying and l’m crying,
Out of character, I’m whining.
There was a glimmer of the future
Of which said future featured you;
It would’ve been simple to buy a ring,
Create a life and start anew.
Thank you for loving me,
It reveals a soul currently exists inside.
I don’t want to leave my city;
A race started that I’m late in running,
Three thousand miles away my baby-girl,
She’s just effortlessly stunning;
Will ruthless ambition be my downfall?
Yet before 13 I’d already lost it all.
Normalcy then complacency
Job, commute, house keys
Homework, chores, day-to-day
Doctors visits, flu shots, meetings with the PTA
Yearning, my heart, craving much more
Wondering about the path on the other side of the door
Hoping to find Sean
