Disconnected (new song)


Disconnected
© Rob Roper  2014

I went for a walk
just to sort things out
but the trees weren't talking
and the robins wouldn't sing
Feeling disconnected
memories washed away
There's nothing left here
I got no reason to stay.

They say dreams are for fools
so pour me a dream
There's a strange feeling
crawling up my skin
Like a lake in a desert
I'm probably chasing a mirage
But I won't let them put a ceiling
A ceiling on my thoughts.

    Walking the edge between
    destitute and free
    Let the consequences
    be what they be

Get in the basket
cut the rope on the balloon
and I'll meet you on
meet you on
the southside of the moon.

DNA (poem)


by Rob Roper  July, 2014

Maybe
it was just a test
to see how much I could take
before I would break

Released from my stay
because of DNA
now I'm free
out the door

a creature of routine
no more.
