Adrift

A Poem by Emily B

On days when

I'm neither here nor there

Adrift in a sea of senseless noise

Battered by waves of unrecognizable emotion,

Floating, just floating.

On days when I have

That faraway look

When you call my name,

Just know, you may have to call again

before I come back to you.

There's something immensely real in being neither here nor there.. tis a place where a person can be utterly alone but happily self, briefly lost in an unreachable place Cloud-gazing loses me to reality sometimes..

Those two last lines are like golden cords holding you close to someone.. out of reach but never gone.. so beautiful.

Ahh I see we all do feel the same at times, adrift and alone. Beautifully put.

At times we need distance/aloneness,
and in your day it might not be feasible,
but it comes on anyway.
Duty calls!

You have a beautiful voice in all
your writing.

Interesting. The last two lines grab and rip in a way that upsets the mind-set one is put into by the previous lines.
Well done.
