tonight i needed home.
i needed it so badly.
i wanted to go.
leave and never come back.
thinking this would make everything better.
making myself believe the four walls and roof i call home
filled with the people who unconditionally love me would cure my heart hurt.
but while i was writing jamie i realized no matter where i run,
my troubles will chase me.
i can't run.
i have to face life.
i am so grateful for technology
and the comfort of knowing my parents are one dial away.
their words calmed my troubled heart,
replaced the frown on my heart with a smile
and dried my tears with the promise of a new day.
