This city

I don’t know why I came here.
I had my reasons,
but this city,
once familiar,

briefly a home,
is now as strange
as any I’ve found myself in
And it hits me,

just how alone I am
now.
There’s nothing
for me here.

And with each step
I count down
the hours
until I leave,

and swap these streets
for others and the comfort
of more familiar
faceless people.
