I left home for a little while. Where I’m from we never lock our doors or windows.
“Locks are to keep people in.” That was the philosophy.
Nothing has ever been taken from me. But that’s not to say that nothing was lost.
I left home and when I came back it was gone. All the peace I once knew was gone. It is not the place or the things, it’s the people and it’s the time. Places and things do not change while people and time cannot hold still.
I stand on a familiar coast and I cannot feel anything nostalgic.
