Between Worlds

There are some days
Where I am unsure
Quite how to act
Quite where I am
I find myself
Lost in thought
Drifting
Between worlds
My mind
Elsewhere

On these days
I may appear
Distant
Uninterested
But I can assure you
I am anything but
My mind
Is focused
On you
On the details
On the past
And the patterns
And the implications
That arise therefrom

Words
And the meaning behind them
The very essence of being
At times rich and flowing
Can be illusive at others
Filled with independent will
Bashful and flirtatious
Hiding behind
A tapestry of light and color
Weaving in and out
Of and from
Time and memory
Inescapable
Yet inaccessible just the same

    1. I am so glad you can relate, though a part of me wants to say that it is unfortunate just the same. It is a frustrating state of mind, particularly for those around us, but one that does carry value if communicated effectively so as to be understood. I just hope that those in your life who might be impacted understand and appreciate it/you for the unique perspective that is gained.

    1. Thank you. There are many thoughts that come from this mindset, some of them wonderful and some of the relentlessly not so. I have learned over the years to recognize the difference and distinguish between them in how I process. πŸ™‚

    1. That is a very good question, and one I can’t help but ask myself. I do have times where I am in a cloud, a fog, and my words circle my head but I fail to capture them. It is one of my challenges and gifts… And it is often from these states that my best writing is born.

    1. Thank you Isha, it means so much that you say this. I am sometimes unsure of my writing, especially when it is so personal. I am so grateful when people such as yourself take the time to comment.
