Ubi Bene Ibi Patria

I miss
How the horizon is an image of solace
How the sky and sea looks unending
Despite knowing that there is at least one point
Where the two are distinctly apart
How everything looks like a blank canvass
Waiting for an artist' stroke of the brush
The first touch of pen to paper

I can almost hear the waves
Crashing against the shore
Like the first line of notes in a musician's sheet
Like the first movement of a dancer's body

I wish to be able to take all of these in
Until my mind is brimming over of things I care to see
Until my heart stops beating fast with every whisper of the wind saying,
"Go and remember yourself"

I wish to find the courage within me
To go after things I need instead of want
And right now both seem to be the same thing

I wish to be understood and misunderstood at the same time
And not give a fuck whichever everyone prefers

I do not wish to satiate my need to leave
Because it will always be inside me
Burning and consuming every inch of my being
Until I can say that this is it
This is home.
