rootless by anelephantcant

Click here to hear the poet read his words:

rootless

if
I didn’t
have you
I’d just
float away
I’d drift
with nothing
no anchor
to hold me
here
or anywhere

so
everything
I have done

has brought me
to now

when
I realise
that

our first encounter
was
the most important
moment
of
my
life

it was
on
a beach
or
in
a bar
or
maybe

at
an airport
I think
but
I don’t
remember
I
can’t
remember
which
of these
is true

I
am
drifting
rootless

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. https://anelephantcant.me/
