If only I could let the world see me,
see where I linger.
Caught between two worlds, separated only by a reflection.
I continue to write my words, words that come from a place deep within myself,
but those words will never be seen.
Reality lies above and below me.
I can hide in both of these worlds, torn between them,
never sure of which world I will feel truly defined.
I play a role in each of these spaces.
I let those others who dwell here see only pieces of me, not the whole picture.
Caught between my realities.

Written as a first attempt at the 100-Word Song Challenge. Lance introduced me to this challenge and I thought I would give it a try.
This is what it’s about – A song is chosen and the post that is written has to be somewhat based on that song and written in exactly 100 words. This week’s 100 word song – Above & Below – The Bravery.
I really like your interpretation. It’s almost as if you are levitating. Nice.
Thank you….what a fun challenge!
Very nice, Susan! I hope you’re back in your house soon.
Thanks Jill…it was a fun writing challenge!
Did you write this for me? : ) jk This is how I feel. Like I’m straddling a border between here and somewhere else. Very nice post.
Thank you very much. 🙂
This is amazing: “I can hide in both of these worlds, torn between them,”
I loved your interpretation of the song. welcome to 100 word song.
Thanks for suggesting I participate….I’m looking forward to the next one! 🙂
I’m already looking forward to next week’s song….I may have a problem. 🙂
Really enjoyed this. I can definitely relate. I’ve felt myself in the same place numerous ocassions. You’ve described the struggle spot on.
Thanks very much, I appreciate that.
