Of Attachment and Detachment

silence

Attachment may happen in the blink of an eye
Detachment may take a lifetime, or several

Aren’t they exact opposites?
Why then is the effort not the same?

I don’t have a forever to my name
Alone I arrived, alone allow me to depart

I protest against the burden of you
And if need be, I shall sacrifice all my words
As compensation for my freedom

And you shall bear the title of
The One who Silenced the Poet

  1. Dear Sonya,

    Thank you for this poem.

    The burden of that to which we are attached can sometimes be suffocating.

    All good wishes,

    robert
