– I pack my bags and I roam the world, yet when I come home, it seems I was never gone.

The travels enrich me but solace I find in my bed. Wanderlust beckons but home calls out louder. I wonder what will it be like to be gone, and to never be back.


 

Airports are lonely places..
And I land again
No “home” to go to
A house that was home
Until a few days ago
No cuddles waiting for me
No hands recognizing me in sleep
Timezones away is my soul
And I land again..and again.. Till I reach you again..

Until then. Airports are lonely places
Airports are sad places

Friend: radio silence

Another scenario:
