“Take Me Home” Poem of the Day (2022)

Take Me Home

By Ashley O’Hare

Home.

I could give you a definition 

of the word easily.

I could list

examples feverishly.

I could even find

its root of origin timely,

but I have never been there.

I know Home’s anatomy:

People and things you love.

A spot to rest comfortably.

A judgment free zone.

A place you’d want to spend eternity.

My knowledge of what it should be 

is extensive.

My real life application experience

is depressive.
