Where I Belong

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

It always strikes me when I see a poem with a perfect rhyme that doesn't sacrifice the potency and meaning of the words. This is wonderful, thanks for entering it in the contest!

Thank you so much
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.
