When I lay curled up in bed
in the dark hours of the night,
a foreign feeling weeps to me.
it envelops my body
and seeps into my skin.
it is hunger.
A hunger for home,
familiarity,
comfort.
For belonging,
for shelter.
A yearning for something.
I do not know concretely
what I so longingly desire
But it is there,
a dull ache buried deep within me
that emerges
like an apparition
hazily but surely,
when I am alone

How easily is this poem relatable? Very much so. I feel the emotion within it. The longing and pining for home. Sweet sweet home. Very well done.
