Cut My Ties



Cut My Ties is a poem in response to a video prompt presented in OctPoWriMo 2015 - 31 Poems in 31 Days Challenge - Day 2







Cut my ties with earth 

Set my spirits free 

Let me close my eyes 

This is not where I want to be 

You left me standing here 

Alone in my path 

Now I know not where to go 

We have never lived apart 

Cut my ties with earth 

Set my spirits free 

Let me close my eyes 

Next time 

I want to meet you in a place

Where you want to be

  8. I love this. It speaks to my beliefs in reincarnation, which help me understand this chaotic world.
