where home is?

Home is a place Iíve never been  
a feeling Iíve never felt as I was dragged across this vast continent †  
like a gypsy whose companions were also her captors †  
† †
The idea of home and family is empty and lonely †  
so unlike the Disney movies I wasnít raised on †
no video collection on our shelves †  
everything I learnt about the world †  
came from books †  
if nothing else, they taught me to hope †  
for better days †  
†  
Home is something I felt while stoned †  
at 25, watching a Jon Lajoie video on youtube †  
dťjŗ vu, Montreal, maybe? I canít be sure †
Iíve never been there in this life † †
but it felt as familiar to me as my skin †  
if not more so †
and set my heart on fire †
because I too had seen this distant world †  
within my dreams †  
†  
Home is not a place †  
itís a feeling †  
that I remember all too clearly in my heart †  
and I donít know if I will ever get to go home †  
I donít know if I will ever again feel †  
what it is to be lit up like a Christmas tree †  
with magic in my lungs, seeping deep into my bones †
where I am warm and safe and content †
