Torn Between Aches

I had to leave;
It was time to go.

I didn’t make it far,
just a few miles down the road,
when the ache set in.

Because I could,
I turned around and went back,
indulging in a little more.

But then, I had to take my leave.

This time I made it all the way,
traveling to where I also ache to be.

But the moment I arrived here,
the ache to return began.

I know I won’t last long,
before I can’t stay anymore.

It will be time to go back there,
so I’ll leave again.

I’m not sure if I’ll hesitate and turn around here,
indulging a little more before I travel to where I also ache to be.

But I know not long after I arrive back there,
the ache will begin again.

      Thx Steve. This isn’t just about where I’ve been. I have several people I love in other places I love that aren’t where I am. There’s always an ache, someone and some place I miss.
