“Home is where the Heart is”

They say, “Home is where the Heart is.”

but my heart is homeless

looking for a place to shelter and warm her


She lurks in the shadows of the single street  light

too afraid to be seen

She roams the streets far past the midnight hour

lonely and cold


But she is hidden in the dark until morning comes.

She turns to run.


Beating sporadically,

she runs in shame and humiliation.

I haven’t been able to catch my breath since.


I used to be able to find her

lurking in the shadows

flying above the clouds

running past me

until her arteries were blocked by the same fear that caused her flee


The say, “Home is where the heart is,”

but if I cant find my heart,

will I ever find my home?
