Home

Inspired by the song Home by Daughtry

The beat take me back
to long car drives 
on seemingly endless interstates
Traveling home
from a different state
feeling connected by an invisable string
pulling me back to Vermont
and my hometown
staring out the window at night
watching the night grow longer
and the lights burn brighter
feeling the song rather than hearing it
a sense of the past 
to easier times
without a worry in the world
when I was young and carefree
along with my family
pillows and blankets
the lyrics make me feel suspended in time
in that very moment
only thinking of going home
