I’ve been home for far too long that I need the space.
Feeling constantly suffocated by the familiarity of it all.
Oh how I long for an adventurous lifestyle.
When did the fire die out?
It don’t seem to remember.
Maybe it’s because I also have become way too comfortable.
Oh how I mourn for the rebellious spirit inside me.
She wants to let out and set free.
Roaming the world without a care in the world.
It feels like forever since I’ve written my thoughts.
Oh how happy I am that I can finally express myself.
Words seem to bare the front of my conflicted soul.
When will the turmoil end?
Hopefully some time soon so that I can smile again.
I’ve been thinking of my future a lot these days.
It must surely mean that big things are coming my way.
I just hope that it won’t be too lonely a road.
Sometimes even I get tired of being home alone.

Oh so where do I begin, I have surely held you hostage for much too long with my feelings towards you,
Kept you from being free to explore the world on your own accord but no longer,
No longer will I hold you back,
No longer will I stop you from finding your own happiness,
No longer will I manipulate you to boost my own ego,
No longer will I pull the strings from behind the curtain,
No longer will I be there for you to push my buttons,
No longer will I pull you down a peg just cause,
Letting go is sometimes harder than it looks,
But when self realisation hits, what else is there for me to do but let go,
I could say that I surely enjoyed my time with you,
Formed a bond so strange that it gave me a temporary escape from my own daily turmoil,
Thank you for the new memories but you are no longer my hostage, I set you free.
I find myself stagnant, unable to move
Not that I don’t want to move but my current predicament won’t let me
I usually get frustrated at this point but not this time
I feel as though I have been through too much to suddenly wither away into nothingness
Life was never meant to be roses and butterflies
That would be way to boring for me and boy do I live for the adventures of life
But don’t just take my word for it
Challenge yourself like never before and watch the beautiful events unfold before your very eyes
Live only to improve on yourself and never be the same person as yesterday but instead, be a better version of yourself everyday
When I see you I see nothingness
Not to take you away from all your greatness
I find myself longing for completeness
Knowing full well all that you give me is hopelessness
I will come for you through the darkness
I will come for you through the bareness
Ready for all your love that comes with recklessness
But in the end, all I needed from you was togetherness.
