Darkness my beloved home, I return!I return, not whole, but damaged.Fatigued by quixotic tendencies,The prodigal has come back famished.An outer world, so hostile and strangeFilled immensely with ignorant nativesThe land where all good is forgottenWhere hatred itself is life’s matrix.Though I’ve brought an odd mystery,An enigma that requires my geniusA phenomenon, in foreign land;A veiled embodiment of Venus.Since, I’ve craved for my sanctuary,I have returned to you, oh darkness!Now I will restore my lost vigor toUnravel demeanors of this goddess.But…..Why am I estranged to this darkness?Maybe I’ve been away for too long,But shouldn’t home always feel home?Why am I in dire need to belong?As if this soul is deprived of lifeAs if this body is in swift decayAs if this mind screams for peaceAs if this heart calls to be lured ‘wayUnwise, to have brought the goddess,When she is of a different realmUnfortunate, to have fallen in love,As she leaves to retain her helmPerhaps, this home lies deep withinFor everything is, but mere illusionHence, I’ll reside her in my heart;To feel her, even in seclusion.
