Stuck in the In-Between – A Poem


Stuck in the In-Between


 You are trapped in the

world of what-not, what-ifs,

and wannabes.


Top at the time may be the bottom

tomorrow, a smile a slap in the face.


Your core is courageous, wrapped in a

layer of boundless denial not looked

at too closely.


The hot sun beats down as the rain

falls in a deluge to sink deep and cold

into your bones.


Reason cannot be reasoned with on a

night when the day won’t go away.


A borderlander without a home, a foot in

the door to life, dusk and dawn



But still you fight, you push and rail

against the unseen that seeks to hold

you in this dark realm of broken dreams.


Soon…Soon… you say they will see,

as you continue to climb, run, and claw

your way out of the in-between.
