you thought that you'd gone home

 

 
you always were an L.A. girl
the desert called to thee
but sand could never keep you trapped
for all eternity
.
your spirit always was too strong
to leave your soul bereft
you thought that you'd come home
but no
you found you'd never left
.
you always were a loving girl
you tried to makes things work
you tried to waltz around the spots
where doubts would often lurk
.
you shrugged your shoulders one last time
relieved to lose the heft
you thought that you'd come home
but no
you found you'd never left
.
you always were my perfect girl
like two peas in a pod
the answer to my every dream
the even to my odd
.
you stole my heart away from me
but i don't mind the theft
you thought that you'd come home
but no
you found you'd never left
.
