Written as a teen..

I am NOT running away.
How was I to know
that there was no place to go?

No Home.

How was I to know..
That love was lost
Not just for a day

But forever

Desperate for deliverance..
from a life
I could not tolerate.

I left

On a mission
To find where I belong
To find I don't ....


Looking for a sanctuary
that does not exist.
I return

In disgrace

I submerge myself
In desperation
In frustration..
No longer believing in ...


No longer dreaming of ...


I have failed life ...

So I stand-


Erica Ivory

G'day to you!
I like this poem. It's expression really POPs. I have that photo in my computer. Isn't it adorable?
I like this poems reality and down-to-earth, gimme-the-mud perspective. It's so true. I wish I could help those that feel like this; I know you are by sharing this!
Lots of Love

Never too late to WIN at life. It's all in what you focus on. Postive, you get positive, the negative, you get the negative. Good work. Thoughtful.
