Anthony Martello

Don'T Come Home

Walk away when you know you should
come back when you know you can't
dream when you're not sleeping
and cry when you're not weeping
slow dance to a fast tune
and howl at an un-full moon
sing to no music
sing to acoustic
laugh at serious subjects
and stare at unique objects
do things normal
be yourself
stay uncommon
feel the unfelt
if things go your way
or if they don't
they'll never say
don't come home.

    The feeling of this poem stirs many questions- the Author is certainly unique. The last line forced me to read this again...10
