The Great Known

The Great Known

A Poem by poison&kerosene

I do my best to cage the sorrow burning through my chest
Stop it before it expels from my mouth
Before I can tell you how I feel

My own special connection severed from you in one fell swoop
Now I am left to adjust to your absence
As you venture back to the great known

Each vocal chord yearning to scream "please don't go"
Both hands aching to grab a hold of your jacket
Tug on it until I am left with only threads

I guess in the end home truly is where the heart is
Your heart was beckoning you back
Mine beckoned for you
