"One day, your life will flash before your eyes; make sure it's worth watching."


My house doesn't feel like
home
anymore; its not where I'm supposed to be.

I can't find a safe haven
anywhere:
not at school,
amongst friends,
family,
and especially not alone

when you're gone.

And I know you leave from time to time,
packing your bags and going on short trips,
but when you leave,
you take home with you -
you take away my comfort,
my shield, the armour that keeps me together
and I'm left defenceless
against the world,
the jousts too violent inside to battle.

So next time, when you pack your bags and go,
please know how much it takes for me
to strip myself of my protection,
to lie bare and vulnerable, letting you leave,
because you've taken a part of me with you,
and never confirmed your fight back
home.
