14
Another morning.
The sun still shines in my face, forcing me to step my foot out of my bed
The floor is crumbling, 
I rushed to wear my bunny shoes but they are melting
A monster has swallowed my room, set my things on fire, snatched my people away
I had locked rooms with ideas, they are floating; I am catching the remaining ashes as they greet me to my new home
Unknown; people surround me. I try to trick my mind that this is my home. But there are no giggles. No whispers in comments
Once upon a time when the notifications made me smile
My neighbors have shifted to another home. 
But how could I forget a place which wasn’t my home in the first place,
It was hope, smile, tears, laughter.
Home 404

I found myself here.
I am picking up the red sheets to washing away the love but now it's bleeding.
I am cleaning the windows, hoping for some sign of hope
I am packing my goods, but nostalgia is holding me back
Save me, my home
Home 404

From the first day, I stepped into this house
I was aware that I didn't belong here 
But I gathered memories from the happy chuckles
When I was with my family, we played game nights on weekends
Musical chairs, board games
The times when I couldn't play chess and thought we used as magnets on the refrigerator
Days when I was low, trying to get up from bed
Sunlight blessed me through the windows which supported me
The moment when I goto the shower and cry, I know this home would never judge me, accept my flaws 
Ceilings dropping tears, wailing for me
The doors have cracked paint waiting for me to heal them
My desk is breaking down, breaking down
How could you bid farewell to us? Samina
Chandeliers whisper secrets in midnights and couches beg me to lay carelessly on it for hours, I wish I could
 
That's when I knew I belonged here
But this home never belonged to me
Home 404

I never found a person who I could call home,
Who I could hug when the days go rough
At least I had a place I call home
But it's lost
Lost but I never owned it
I do own my memories, still
Home 404
But I would never see this street again, never see this home again, 
I am incomplete without this home & this home is incomplete without me
Home 404
 
So the story is that I was tempted to write a lot of poetry during November but due to Nanowrimo I couldNT , I HAVE COLLECTED THE IDEAS AND DECIDED TO DO POETRY PROMPTS DAILY! IF YOU WISH TO USE IT YOUR INDEED WELCOME.

    Hey Samina! I just wanted to wish you a very happy new year! It hasn't been the best year, and high chances are next year is going to be just as bad, but still, I just want to wish you!

    Agh! I'm sorry, I forgot to comment.

    Lemme see....

    Firstly, I love the prompt! I'll try to do one tomorrow...

    'I am picking up the red sheets to washing away the love but now it's bleeding.'

    May I say: Such imagery! I could feel the red sheets in my hands!

    'That's when I knew I belonged here
    But this home never belonged to me'

    I am pretty sure you are talking about WtW, and NO! You belong here, we love you so much!

    About the piece as a whole: I absolutely love the interpretation and the personification! One thing I would kinda suggest is that the repetition of 'Home 404' seemed a bit off. Maybe, instead of having it bolded right under each paragraph, format it like in the last paragraph, and one line apart.... Just a suggestion though...
