Home Seems Far Away

Fog distorts vision

shadows wrestle on the ground

Mist obscures the moon

Streetlights flickering

unseen rustling follows steps

whispering secrets

Shoes knock against stone

dusk cries louder than own thoughts

bumps pierce through flesh

The concept of time

is lost in midnights darkness

rushing you along

Grumbling car passes

engines growl disturbs silence

Fog eats taillights

Your thoughts are muddled

this open space watches you

searching for danger

The presence of owls

quietly hooting in trees

doesn’t calm your nerves

Alone, nervous, tense

trapped amongst nights playful traits

home seems far away
