Poetry

These are not my feelings

My thoughts lift off
Drift off
Like butterflies
Nomadic
Sporadic

Disconnected

My mind is untethered
Weathered
Like dead wood
Splintered
Wintered

Disconnected

My soul is not there
Anywhere
Like the unborn
Unconceivable
Irretrievable

Disconnected

From my body
This broken body
Like an old house
Deserted
Reverted

Back to the earth

These are not my feelings
Revealing
My hiding place
Mine are gone
Undone

Disconnected
