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

iย 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).

 

–ย leave me alone in my own home.
