Adrift

Take your pick, they all mean the same thing anyway.
Is that the beauty of language? 
The complete lack of simplicity.

Life is as complex and tangled as language,
But in life, the intricacy is confusing
Not endearing.

Untied from reality
Uprooted from my life
Astray in the cosmos
Detached from the news
Dangling by a thread
Adrift in the sea of humanity
