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

Shifting.

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?
