::Running Back to you::

Running Back to You



Staring at the photos,
Memories flash by,
Crouched in a corner,
Silently - I cry.
A convoluted maze
of a life so blue,
Where to go now,
I have no clue.

'Friends' are so mean,
Wearing a smiling shroud,
Daddy's pampered girl,
Is lost in the crowd.
Home is too far,
Visits are only few,
Mom,Dad I feel like,
Running back to you.

** had written it way back in 2008 when I first went away from home...

  1. Rajlakshmi.. that is exactly how i felt just a month and half ago.. "Daddy's pampered girl,
    Is lost in the crowd."... I have run back into their loving arms to hide from the mean mean bad world.

  3. Awww... the poem was really sweet although the situation, unpleasant.
    Homesickness sucks big time, esp. when other things aren't going your way either! I liked the way you put 'friends' (in quotes and all)-- well described indeed!
    Hope you are fine and gleeful now though..

    Happy Rallying!!!

  9. Homesickness -- tender and sad, -- missing the loving support of the family and friends that were nurtured and tended like a beautiful garden while growing up --- there is that nostalgic feeling that sweeps over me at times.

    Lovely evocative feelings you created with this poem.
