Broken Roots

I’m a drop of blood in a sea of sharks.
I’m a foreign body in a land of strangers.
I’m a missing shadow in the midnight’s dark.
I’m an unbroken window in warzone danger.

Alone but surrounded here.
On my own, and surrounded here.
Leave me alone, you’re grounded here.
Let me shed a lone, astounded tear.

She’s a bit of iron, sinking to the deep.
She’s a shining gem, hiding in the mine.
She’s a world apart in a realm of sleep.
She’s a rose growing amongst the pine.

Alone but surrounded here.
On her own, and surrounded here.
Leave her alone, you’re grounded here.
Let her shed a lone, astounded tear.

I’m a traveler, seeking sweet sanctuary.
She’s a flower, seeking sun in the city.
I’m a author stuck typing obituaries.
She’s got a broken heart not seeking pity.

Alone, but surrounded here.
On our own, and surrounded here.
Leave us alone, you’re grounded here.
Let us break the stone. 

Please won’t you let us go.

I want to carry her away.
She fears, she wants to stay.
She wants not to leave the sun.
She wants the comfort of her home.

The sun rises everywhere.
The light shines everywhere.
Our home is everywhere,
That we can be.

We are gone. No time for fear.
Gone with the sun, no time for fear.
You rooted plants, you’re all in fear.
The sunrise calls us home, we’re finally here.

The End
