"Self Editing"

Strike out every other word
Maybe that’s still holding what you keep back home.
Maybe “now and then” is how you live,
But can you ever move elsewhere later on.
It’s the very last time
They will have to tell you to go.
You shouldn’t worry because they found you,
but simply because it might be the end.

I’m definitely worried this one’s too subtle, but I’ll just note the tag of “puzzle” in addition to “poetry”.
