First Time in a Week...


For the first time within the last week I will be going home;
For the first time within the last week I will be talking to you;
For the first time within the last week I will be clustrophobic;
For the first time within the last week I will be seeing you...

But I don't feel like coming home just yet cause I don't know anymore;
I don't know if you will hurt me, speak to me or even abandon me...
I still have the bruises from last time I saw you;
Saw you at home before I ran...

Do you still love me? ? ?
Do you still care for me? ? ?
Do I even know you anymore? ? ?
Will I be safe at home? ? ?

I don't know the answers to my own questions...
But for the first time within the last week I am going home...

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
