Home is where the heart is,

But where does the heart go

When nothing remains. Where can it

Heave itself and sigh

After a long, drawn-out day?

Where does the heart go,

When nothing remains,

But the dusty floorboards

And the sickly light filtering though the window,

Where does it go, where does it go,

The heart hopes one day it’ll know

But for now it carries itself day after day

Across the dusty floorboards

Below the filtered sunlight,

Hoping one day, it’ll find a home.

The heart is lost and can’t find a home. It has lost the touch for love and needs to be loved once again. It has been forgotten and covered in dust. It needs to find love once again. Once more, it will find love again. One day. But for now, it is waiting for love. I like how this was written. You can feel how pained the heart is at the moment.

I wish you a nice day/night.

thank you <333
