Poem about Ambivalence

Ambivalence is an internal island Ships pass

Each contemplated

Their commitment to a horizon

Whispers of unsettling consideration


Once solid ground, now tectonic plates


The firm stance slides

We are split, exposed

Does no one see this?

Please don't look.  I am strong.  I am strong.


This isn't happening

yet it is all of me.


Discovering the destination

was a pit stop

Internal compass spinning


The sky, once a mirror is dark

Dare I look at the stars?
