Poetry Corner – Between

Between

Be
In Between
I constantly walk a tightrope
Never quite giving up, never quite committing
Lingering in an state of purgatorial limbo
An incessant internal torment
My soul is never at rest
Permanently caught
In Between
tween

Poetry Corner – The Eternal Wanderer or Home

The Eternal Wanderer or Home

wanderer
From Nowhere...
From Everywhere...
Dirty dreadlocks
Scraped moccasins
Torn backpack
Scuffed map poking out (why do they need a map? they'll never get to where they're going)
A shower is beckoning to them, like a siren to a filthy sailor, tempting, yet out of reach
Phone in hand, but who are they texting, everyone back at home has already forgotten about
them or given up
A look of eternal loss across their expression
"Life's an adventure," they think but it's not what they feel
They just want to go
Home

Poetry Corner – Drifter

Drifter

A Drifter, I've lost all direction
A nomad, I've lost all purpose 
A piece of trash, I've lost all worth 
A skeleton, I've shed all flesh 
Inhuman, I've lost all shame
Alone, I've pushed away my closest companions
Selfish, I’m able only to look out for myself 
I feel like I may drift forever, never returning home…
