Poetry A-Z

I think the title's fairly self-explanatory


1. Apple Tree


I feel strung by the depths of your roots,
your branches enclosing me like arms 
locked around a newborn child.
And your leaves forever shade me, 
from the rain,
from the storms,
from the light,
from the world.
And maybe you're too protective of the blossoming
shadow I'm turning out to be.
The shadow created by you,
living for you,
hidden by you.
But one day I will no longer have to
hide beneath your shelter.
Once I have been picked,
I will be gone.
