#WednesdayVerses : In between

in between

I search for answers that have reasons,
For an understanding of what things mean.
While I jump from one moment to the next,
Missing out on life in between.


I wander through life,
From one place to the next,
In search of peace,
That can put my mind at rest.


Like the rose that is placed,
Safely between the pages of a book,
I patiently wait, while life fades away,
For someone to take a look.


Can you hear me in the silence,
In between the words I speak?
Can you see me in the light,
In between the darkness bleak?


I tried fitting into the divides,
The way the world wanted me to be seen,
But I realized I belong neither here or there,
But somewhere in between.


As a part of our resolution to write more poetry in 2018, Vinay and I have started this weekly prompt which we’ve decided to call Wednesday Verses. Each Wednesday, we’ll be writing a poem based on the prompt of the week, and sharing a linky. We invite you all to join us with your own poems on the prompt. Write on your blogs, and link up with #WednesdayVerses. Please add your post links to the linky only if you have written for the prompt. We are happy to have you rhyme with us.Prompt #21 is “In Between”.

    People tend to read in between when its not required. Other times they just skip over… 🙂 LEt me recipe for eggs kejriwal cheer you up 😉


  2. Why are we supposed to fit the bill of either this side or that? Why such rigid choices? There is a whole world of choices in between that may just suit us fine. Lets have that freedom to pronounce and courage to stand by our choice and be comfortable with what we are and not what we should be!
    Great thought, expressed so well.

    I love the imagery of this poem and the idea of being in the middle, between the two sides. I think that it’s an all right place to be because it is the place that is most free of other people’s expectations.

    I’m falling in love with your rhyming scheme. Having said that, this poem is beautiful and talks about the chaos of the mind so well.

    I love this poem! We are all looking for answers. 🙂 Few things in life are “either” “or”; there’s a giant grey area in between.
    Good idea for a blog hop, as well.
