Almost Balanced


Almost Balanced


Both ends of my mind


Ceremoniously still

until awakened by alarms,

the other side could suddenly empty.

Locked in teetering,

a suspended dance,

always digging for control,

nothing but blue jeans and

cotton to help anchor -

the far edges of me

do not agree, do not resign,

so after all this,

reality might not win.

as i libra i can relate the concept of being balanced and unbalanced... it is a continuing struggle... nicely written

I have to call in a mediator, when both ends get going at the same time, and when all three want to argue. Reality steps outside,... good read it took three times for it to all sink in.

Poetry is what gets lost in translation.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
