This was not the poem that I set out to write tonight. In fact I’m feeling a little blocked.
This might be a no no to admit, but I’m not even sure what it’s about, not really. It’s a mashup of several story lines, as if all my demons of the past 3 years are fighting for attention but none of them are winning. This isn’t supposed to be a sad poem, just a reflection.
Our lives are composed of the intertwining of faith and falling. No matter where you are in that process, I hope you are at peace.

Sometimes the best poems arrive when we don’t understand the words. Meaning can come from much deeper inside us than other times. I think that’s what has successfully happened here.
I like that. Thank you!
I took a leap of faith
But a ragged edge caught something
Now I’m spinning and falling
Can’t make sense of where
I am now, or where
I am headed
And this feels most unpleasant
I don’t think it’s a no-no. I think that’s part of what writing, and particularly poetry, is about…sorting through the mishmash of thoughts and feelings that encompass our humanity. 🙂
Well said! Thanks for the validation 🙂
Been here, and I get get it… Sorry to say.
