    What’s Inside

    Reminiscent of Manafest’s station

    Mental entrapments…confusion…doubt…anguish…apprehension…fear…heart wrenching…standing with my back against an unstable wall…thinking that my only course of action is moving forward hand in hand because if I move backward life would be no more…

    My mental is at war with my emotional
    Logic is failing…my vision is slowly fading into the backdrop
    Some way some how this battle has affected my taste buds
    The sweetness of Love’s juices have become acidulous
    And the more confused I get the bitterer I become
    My body…this battle has made me the recipient of malnourishment
    It’s so weak…so frail
    But firmly I’m holding on with one hand and I’m feeling myself getting weak in the knees
    I’m tripping…I’m slipping…on the verge of crumbling
    Agility has escaped me
    To be replaced by incapacity
    My only source of staying focused is reminiscent love
    *sigh*
    My equilibrium needs restoring…I’m failing at this balancing act
    And I know what will keep me steady
    Once existing in full vision
    But the mass of clouds and even the slightest wind gust keeps nudging me back
    If I could just muster up the strength to grab hold with the other
    If I could just push past the wind and if the sun could dry up the rain clouds
    I could touch it…
    The tenderness
    The boldness
    Life
    Peace
    My balance
    My mental and emotional would not suffer climatic upheavals
    If I could stretch a little further. I could just grasp it. Sitting right there.
    And when this struggle is over…I can bask in Love’s glory…sit at Love’s table…drink from Love’s cup. I can rest my head on Love’s shoulder.

    Your words, so potent, as I read along I find that what's inside yearns for a taste of what's inside that cup, the battle is so intense. Posed wonderfully poet.
