A Place I'Ve Never Been

Poem by Faith Elizabeth Brigham

sometimes, i just don't want
to be me if being me means
never getting the love i need
loving too much and trusting
too far just to get hurt
all over again, no
i don't think my heart
could take another hurt

i am lonesome for a place
there is a name for it i know
it's difficult to explain but
i know the feeling all too well
it is a kind of nostalgia
for a place i've never been
