Honorable Mention
“When I Think Of You I Think Of Home”
Jill Lindblad
Norman, Oklahoma

When I think the roads I think of night
Driving to the edge but never find an edge in sight
Only bleak reflections on the cold and rusted chrome
But when I think of you I think of home.

When I think the house I think the door
Slammed so hard it shook me sitting on my bedroom floor
The space beyond it only an abandoned catacomb
But when I think of you I think of home.

Too scared to turn off all the lights
Too tired to make me whole
I cannot quite remember when
I last felt in control
And sanity for me will always be one pace away
But you in mind will cool the searing madness where I lay.

When I think of sky I think of sea
Falling from the cliffs between when no one’s watching me
Licked and lost forever in the ocean’s angry foam
But when I think of you I think of home.

Too scared to turn off all the lights
Too tired to make me whole
I feel these racing years will come
And finally take their toll.
And broken tears and glass will fall from my hands when I pray
But when I think of you I know I’ll last for one more day.

When I take my leave I think of song
The music tells me I can’t stay in one place very long
But this I know, wherever the world takes me to to roam
When I think of you, I’ll think of home, home, home.
When I think of you, I’ll I think of home.
