I just want to go back

I just want to go back

I just want to go back

 

I just took a last ride through the city tonight. I won't be able to go to the city again, and I don't know until when. Demolished buildings all around the city streets and not a single soul outside, it hurts to see Zagreb like this. I went past my church, my favorite place to be in besides my home. All the memories inside, I don't want them to be forgotten. I constantly hear: "Take a look, it might be the last time in a while that you see it.". This is just too much pressure for me. I haven't seen my friends for weeks now. I just want to go back, back to my old life, do what I did before. I never appreciated it that much, but now, I'd give everything just to go back. I constantly feel like a part of me is missing and I just can't find it at home. I feel lonely, I watch the news and I see the world I know ending in front of my eyes. I see Zagreb being torn apart, innocent people being thrown out of their homes. My hope is slowly fading. I just want to go back.
