HOME

A Poem by Marc Marlon Villaflor
"

Sometimes we need to say goodbye even it hurts.

"

 


I packed my bags heading to the elevator
This pain has eaten my soul and I don’t want to stay anymore
My tears already dried in winter’s morning
I want to start my new life and forget you and everything
As I walk through the empty space holding my baggage
Can’t figure out what life could bring in this torn page
I know my life will always be part of you
Even if I am no longer part of your tomorrow

Home, so many years I believed we could put together
Home, I thought would  settle our dreams forever
But now that home is just a cherished memory
In this moment, I am walking out of your life and I am free
Sad memories almost shred me into pieces
Years of undying love I gave to you that nobody can replace
I am moving out, don’t look for me
Forget me, as I don’t want to stay

Home, this is our broken dreams we can’t re-create
Home the place I thought we could breathe
Home that always brought new promises
Home that forever in my heart I will miss
Home that I left because of downfall and infidelity
Home that witnessed all the pain inside of me
Home where  you and I no longer belong
Home, a broken home, where our love is no longer strong

Very intense emotions and gripping inner struggles expressed in this work. The title portrays what is basically the "heart residence" and when that is gone "home" goes with it. A unique and creative way to put them into words, the effect is truly sad and tormenting.

This is a stunning piece. Perfect actually....

Home, so many years I believed we could put together
Home, I thought would settle our dreams forever
But now that home is just a cherished memory
In this moment, I am walking out of your life and I am free

The above words almost made me feel as though I could reach into the soul of this piece and just live there inside the painful passion that spurred the words. 100 daisies. ABSOLUTELY!

You slayed me with this read Marc....between your words and that music, I can hardly hold back my tears. This reaches into the heart and tears a tiny hole that can never be repaired. Your words touched me...the last verse is killer and finished me off.

A very sad poem. Worst days of our life is leaving our home for any reason for a long time. To be broken by sadness needing escape leave us with a permanent hurt. Good music and a amazing poem.

Thanks Stella, :) I really appreciate your precious time reading my work.
Home I always seem to say in the end is that place I can never seem to stay away from. But I think of the rest of the places in time as the scene of the party. You touched that, or allowed me to touch that again here. Good job.
