Home Bound

Home Bound sonnet poems

Photo by Ömer Ünlü

Unimpressed by your lack of ambition
I want to control, dictate your small mind
Exploited, but fine with your position
While our heads are foreign, our hearts combined
Your mother, your dad grew up in this town
Your father served the country for a while
Whilst your mother stayed and held her home down
I will not stay long, you’re in denial
Keep to myself, while you run the show
In a settlement, where no one sees out
You humour your peers, and can’t spot a foe
Could not bribe me, in you I will doubt
Ask me again and then I’ll stick around
To tell you the truth to you I am bound

I feel all alone In a dark place with no sign of life Sign of life being happiness and love The dark place is in my head Cause I have created this place for myself to escape the reality The
