Back home?

Back into the old familiar vennel,
Yet the heart thumps hard within,
Quick shivers conduct through,
With each step, as the door nears,
My dreaded soul, quick at it’s heels,
To run miles away, the other end,
In dire straits, becoming onerous,
To put myself together, to face her,
Back home, here, after several years,
Will she welcome me with open arms,
Or doors remain closed on me forever…

Thank you!
