I am mute though

I can’t stop talking

Unanchored

I am cast adrift

slowly dispersing

I am everywhere but nowhere at all

As you slip away

I know. One day you will die

And I will still be here

Bobbing around

deafened by the loss

That began the day I was born

Forever a grace note

In other people’s lives

Until one day

I’m not.

Unanchored: Not anchored or securely fixed; not having a firm basis or foundation; free or liberated
