Click here to hear the poet read his words:

clouds obscure

once we meandered hand in hand
heading in the same direction
today I find I’m out of touch
I can’t see my own reflection

I thought I knew your heart’s desires
understood what we were seeking
but recently I miss the point
I can’t hear the words I’m speaking

a faintly coloured thread has snapped
you have changed though I’m the same
I am abruptly all adrift
I now can’t recall my name

like stars that dance across night skies
I follow where you lead me
as clouds obscure those long dead lights
I know that you no longer need me

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless.
