I Have Long Ceased

by Philip F De Pinto

Freed or Pried
From the company you keep
I have long ceased
Or have I
Asking myself why
I sit here in the park alone
Or am I?

It is no great leap
To be freed or pried
From the company you keep
At hand at sea or in land
As finds you sitting alone
In the park

Or am I
That after a while I
Meld in so with its features
You think I am one of the critters
You have come here to feed

I might kindly name you "pine", a grand tree in any park, under whom many would love to sit or climb, in time.

I love Kristina's note and along that line, I am one of them there critters that feeds on YOUR lines you grand poo pine, the heap of which I hump a soft bed a pillow so to sleep to arise in time for more of your lines caress as feed the soul.

Catchy linguistic twists and turns, providing for an all round fun read, Phil.
