I left your murky waters with a feeling of freedom

A leap into the unknown

I left the familiar curves and edges of your streets southward bound

I thought I knew you

Like you were a captivating yet stoic relative.

Now that I’ve come back again you are unfamiliar to me

You replaced me

You saw me as something disposable

How can I call you home?

long not for you but to forget you.

You are a stranger
