I drifted away so far,

a distance reflected in words

rolling between my tongue,

feeling what loneliness holds

every time I drifted apart

when to go it felt so strong.


It seems so far away,

weak connections calling me

to return and become the part

left behind somewhere free,

but going back to my dismay

I cannot, too far I drifted apart.

    Reblogged this on Message in a Bottle and commented:
    The beauty of having talented friends. Their words often reflect my own thoughts/moods. But the good news here — I haven’t strayed too far … yet. Thank you, Hector for sharing!!
