No Place Like Home

I have returned to my old Hell,
But ere I'd seen it there
With my own eyes, though 'twas disguised
As a cure to my despair 
I took to hold- to hold is fast!
Though it forced me off its cliff
To plummet through my painful Past-
And in myself, create a rift

    A very ironic title for the content of the poem. Love it... Dwelling on the past can be an addictive. I've certainly been chained there a few times. Another awesome one ...

    I can really relate to this poem! Sometimes it can be painful looking back on our memories, and it can put us in a bad mood for a long time. But, I have learned that it is not healthy to live in the past. And, poetry definitely helps me to deal with it when those feelings do surface...Great work on this poem!
