i went away, i grew up
felt homesick, sick for the hurt, and the empty walls
homesick for the house, the deathly sounds
an ocean away.
everything- too perfect, the city, the people
too beautiful for a girl like me
homesick for the broken bonds
between friends and family
dinner- too perfect
there i sat, in a place too fancy
in new york
for the lies and the misery.
