Home Isn'T Home Anymore - Poem by Jessica Hastings

How you reach out
To the day
When you finally can come home

The day before your return
Saying goodbye
You could handle the world
You are happy

The night before your return
You lie in bed
Feeling miserable
You understand

You understand
Your home isn't home anymore
You don't feel happy
At the place they call home

You don't look forward
Because this place called home
Makes you want to stay away
As long as possible

This place called home
Makes you sick

Your lovely home
Has turned in to a place
Where all your demons

    Your lovely home
    Has turned in to a place
    Where all your demons
    Rest. Home is a place where we are loved and cared for. where we receive praises even for little things. yet when we dont receive it, it becomes hell and we dont want to stay. you hve portrayed well the miseries. thank you

    i'm sure this has meaning for you. well-written. the only suggestion is to look at Has turned in to a place.
    thanks for sharing. i thought, as i read this, that the person was about to be released from a prison or hospital.
    :) there's no place like home, unfortunately, does not always ring true!

    You have successfully described a home overtaken by demons. You've taken the readers with you. While we pray this kind of situation doesn't happen to our worst enemies, we should also guard ourselves against any complacence or any faltering from our side. (Report) Reply
