Dark, Desolate Home

Dark, Desolate Home

A Poem by Deepshikha
"

I want to go home. I don't care how terrible it is. I simply want home.

"

I'm hanging on a hill,

a lush green hill,

a crumbling green hill,

my shadow's dream.

 

I'm dreaming of a dream,

a dream within my dream,

my dream's dream,

my home of dreams.

 

I'm searching for a place,

one where butterflies scream,

where the flowers bleed,

and the ravens sing.

 

I'm looking for my home,

my dark, desolate home,

the only place I've known,

the only place I'll know.

 

I'm falling 'cause of you,

because you won't take me home,

because you say there's too much risk,

you say there's too much fear.

 

I'm aware of the beasts,

of the monsters I've made,

they won't hurt a fly,

they barely touch the sky.

 

I'm going to escape to the trees,

to look at my home,

to its long lost loan,

to that which once shone.

 

I'm seeing what you say,

but I won't listen because it's

why I sadden, it's where I

slept, it's where I bloomed.

 

I'm not asking for anything

but to see the manor where I grew up,

where I grew old,

where I was sold.

 

I'm crying for you to take me to my

mother, to take me to my

father, to where they had risen,

to where they had died.

 

I'm asking once more,

for you to come and

take me home, my home,

my dark, desolate home.

Did I catch a few Poe references here? I really liked the repetition here. You also used your rhyme well in this piece. This write has a natural rhythm to it, and in some ways it fells as if it is a mantra. Well done.
