The first stage of doubt:
Being forced to recognize the limitations
Of time and distance
A one hour flight to travel into the depths of mind;
Second guessing position of desire
And what you want
The incessant rain keeps my feet wet, creating
Dirty tracks that lay out the roadmap of the steps carefully placed and manipulated
Just like want and desire?
Knowing the pain to grow stronger with each layer of question, confusion
I sometimes wonder if there’s any strength available for purchase
The expanse between your world and mine is great
I don’t know if I’m capable of ignoring the empty space surrounding
Even though I crave it, I can’t stand being alone
Or, the forgotten thoughts of those who claim ownership

I am grateful for every thought. ❀

  1. I can so much empathize with this. Doubt of one’s world is so very, very painful, sometimes as if the ground is been taken from underneath one’s feet. And when one is alone in this, it’s even harder.

    • Doubt is a tricky beast, right? One minute he’s here to play and then the next minute just remembered as a silly pessimistic thought. Very powerful but ultimately unpredictable. Being alone with doubt can be hard but satisfying when strength and wisdom help dissolve it. Hopefully we can shatter this doubt that’s sticking around, eh? Thanks for commenting πŸ™‚
