To be Unglued

For once, I would like

To be a piece of paper

At the mercy

Of the wind,

To stay somewhere

Only for a few seconds,

For I am tired

Of being a tape-person,

Sticking to places

For way too long,

And not leaving

Until I am yellow,

And often not leaving

In spite of that.

  1. Lovely poem, Aaysid. I can relate to this from the other perspective. I think I’m probably a ‘tape person’ as I tend to like to settle in one place, physically at least, and probably till I’m old and yellow. However, mentally and emotionally, I think I’m more like that piece of floating paper, longing for freedom and wider horizons. Thanks for sharing. Xx πŸ’–
