#WednesdayVerses : 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”.
