Away from the City & Home

Updated: Apr 30, 2020

By- Ayesha Aggarwal

If I could drive a thousand miles


away from the city and home


I’d reach a place where the starry sky


is not veiled by a staged glow


I’d sleep under the heavenly blanket


with the soft grass under my head


and wake with the chirpin’ birds


and the morning dew on my hands


away from the city and home


a place where I can finally breathe


and heave a sigh of relief


the horns no longer bleed my ears


nor do the people make me groan


out here away from the city and home


is a place where I can finally be on my own.
