I Went Away – Written Thursday 18th October 2001 (Aged 26)

I Went Away

i went away,
packed those bags
who wants to stay
who wants to be sad
it is okay,
i will not go mad
i went away,
caught sight of relaxation
just let me sleep for a while
you are the perfect solution
the heat is your smile
i went away,
trying to define home
it is okay,
i do not feel alone
live for individuality
do not suffer as a clone
it is a shared reality
