Found again


When I was empty
all those years
right up
until
a minute or so
ago
thought I needed
a thing or two
someone
something
a bit of good advice
tripping in a bathtub
shooting lines
to me
searching
for the icing on my cake
such a time
drowning
my way slowly
to the bottom
of a bottle
was it only
yesterday
I looked inside
to find the way
back home
saw the strangest question
that I didn't need to ask
saw the front
behind myself
paths turning
back to here
roads travelled
turn to dust
I'm actually here...
shake my head in disbelief
pinch me
am I real?
the one that
I was searching for
put simply
was that
me?
