Far Off Sort of Homesick

I'm homesick for faraway places
For cities and skylines to get lost in
For endless bridges full of lights
And darkness held back by the life carrying on into the night
I'm longing for the chatter and bustle
For the smells and sounds of hustle
And hurried feet and trampled toes
I miss the endless interests
The countryside and wilderness
The dreams and love of loneliness
A hopeful sort of cloudiness
That keeps you wanting to return
To explore, wander and learn
Of pasts and histories
I'm homesick for a far of place
Somewhere my heart was left
I needn't bring it back with me
Only,
Leave a Promise
Of a longing loneliness
In a populated wildness
A city full of lights
And love
And life
