Where I Belong

A Poem by Evelynn

Towns blur together
Cities are all the same
You’re still on my mind
And I’m the one to blame
I should’ve never fell
I should’ve never thought
I should’ve never dreamed
Pain is all that it brought
I sit by the window
Waiting for a sign
That maybe I was wrong
To leave it all behind
But I know that it won’t come
Because how could it be wrong
If it makes you happy
Then away is where I belong

Good job with rhyme & rhythm which helps your piece flow along with a compelling storyline. The ending is the opposite of what I woulda thought for this familiar saying "where I belong" -- usually it's to be with the person that's being addressed, but in this case, you're saying "to go away" is "where I belong" -- adds a bit of interest to craft it in an unexpected way (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

❤❤❤❤ U r welcome
This is so vulnerable and poignant that it stole my breath. I know this sentiment. I hate that I know it, but you seemed to write it straight from my life and my soul. A powerful piece.

Thank you so much! It's a great feeling knowing that people can connect with me writings.
"If it makes you happy
Then away is where I belong" I like this part. Sometimes being away is best. Sometimes more for the one pushed away them the ones who did the pushing. Sometimes these things make us stronger.

Honest and true words written dear friend.
"And I’m the one to blame
I should’ve never fell
I should’ve never thought
I should’ve never dreamed"
Regret is a heavy rock to carry. When we run away. We break two hearts. Thank you Evelynn for sharing the amazing poetry.
