A Place I Used To Go
Author: Seizure


This place in my vision seems surreal, it is bright
Everything's in place and damn does it feel right
The wind creaks the trees, and blows around the leaves
A place I used to go, where no one ever grieves
Running water's heard, birds chirp all above
I think this place is perfect, I think that I'm in love
This is where I'll live, to live in peace again
Something keeps pain out, while letting this joy in

I hate having to leave, I want to stay forever
This place is good to me, I could never hurt it ever
The way the sun breaks, through the darkest cloud
And fades away the thunder, no matter how strong and loud
Makes me realize, there's something more to life
Then troubles in this world, and fearing for your strife
I must leave now, but I swear I will return
I've so much more to study, I've so much more to learn

It's been several years, but I finally made it back
What used to be so bright is burned and faded black
No life is in sight, the water has run dry
Just old and messy garbage is filling up the sky
The Sun is blocked out, by this smog and this waste
Cold wind makes me freeze, I lost my sense of taste
What all happened here? I really couldn't know
My mind's all that's left, of the place I used to go

We've all had experiences in our lives like that, and whether it was something tangible or emotional, to have it be gone or so completely changed is bizarre and makes you almost question your sanity. Great Write. Thanks for sharing the thought.
