Felt so familiar Kitchen bare but cupboards full I never felt the pull like this before So I grabbed some canned food and ran for the door Two eyes appeared before, and stared through, me Looking so hard they couldn't see Who they thought I was Just because, just because Dear home, I'm gone, I'm lost Don't look, I'll never be The distant light is catching, catching up with me I thought I had a choice but clearly you can see The distant light is pulling, pulling, pulling me All cans were empty and my shoes were getting worn My will and my jacket, torn Resolve and shoulders, tired After a fortnight, concrete faded out of grass I slept under the overpass With no cars around to disturb My father's face, forgot My mother's voice, obscured My fear of losing everything, forever cured I hadn't seen my own reflection in a week Tongue tied too tight to try to speak Ten tiny tigers took turns trying to torture time My mind made mean messes moving mine Inside insects intertwined Heavy-hearted Harry hacked his hatchet halfway home Headlining Hell's Hippodrome Happy, human homophones Naysayers not-withstanding, no-one needed news Nothing neutral, naked, nearly ninety-two Battered beasts beg beastly bats beginning bites Swearing 'Someone save me from these sickening sights!' After almost a year some order was restored The people left were getting bored Of living in utopia My blurring vision gave me a suspicious mind And other thoughts of the same kind But who am I to question me
