leave me alone in my own home

this is my safe place

my home

my soul.

 

i pour everything

i am

here,

for you to hold these words

close to your chest;

and for me

to purge out

these overwhelming

feelings

i own.

 

(knowing that this haven of mine

is known by people

who only want to

bring me down

is enough,

sometimes,

to completely

shatter me).

 

i am a tiny star

in a sea of constellations.

every time I come to this place,

i fear

that those who

long for my demise

have rampaged

my home

and destroyed

the peace.

 

(it is a long-held

fear,

and i am still scared).

 

– leave me alone in my own home.
