This is my first poetry duet with Hastywords and hopefully not my last. She is truly a talented writer and beautiful person. I’m sure you’ve already clicked follow on her blog, but if you haven’t you are missing out!
I found myself wandering aimless
between several different worlds,
in and out like a homeless ghost
my mind splitting, fracturing
and my perspective splintering
Lost in a cavern of realities
whispers of promise echoing
taunting, just out of reach
unsure of which path to choose
I float in a sea of uncertainty
The colors of my past are bleeding
hiding lessons learned in a foggy gray
feelings and emotions are muddled
until I feel I may drown, breathless
inside all my lost yesterdays
The canvas of my life stares blankly
looking back at me with ambivalence
urging me to lift my head
beckoning me to not just tread water
but to thrive and embrace what lies beyond
Before despair takes me asunder
I focus only on paths ahead, determined
blurry lines begin to sharpen, harden
into black and white, new outlines
new paths, waiting to be colored in
