#NaPoWriMo CONFLICTED

In a Sky Full of Stars

 

Eyes widen
Heart thudding
Fight or flight in vein
Chest tighten
Panic budding
Heard you speak my name

It isn’t you,
You silly fool
Why such a fragile trust?
What can you do
To overrule
The way you flap and fuss?

So reluctant
Hiding out
Don’t want to know the truth
Re-enactment

Casting doubt
And terrified of proof

Like as not
It’s something else
Which took priority
You aren’t forgot
Don’t be so false –
No need for you to be

Stomach clenched
Discovery
Readied for new scars
Mind untrenched
My spirit free
My soul returns to stars

Today’s challenge was dialogue – something which I rarely get poetical about (unless I’m trying to be *terribly* fancy, in which case I might drop a big word or six…) and having loved the explanatory poem ‘A Dialogue between the Soul and the Body‘ by Andrew Marvell, I decided to let my emotions and my logic have a little chat about the resolution (oh, sweet, wonderful resolution) of the situation which gave me a Sad, yesterday.

All is well, all is well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    If only my intellect could have a conversation with my emotions and stop the pain. Great poem, Lizzi. This time I read the prompt.;)

      I wish so, too. In the event, it wasn’t my intellect which won out, but that a friend got in touch and the situation changed from bad-bad to wonderful. Because I’d gone all overthinky on it in the first place and chickened out of confirming facts.

    It’s challenging when you don’t know what another person is thinking. I can understand that for sure.

      More challenging still when your propensity is to internalise, assume blame (regardless of whether there is any) and put up walls. It’s a bad habit and one I’ll try to break, I promise. Personal growth needed here, methinks, but at least I’m aware of it.

      I’m a fool. And you, my sweet, are not ❤
