One Stop Poetry!
Today, we have a special guest poet who continues to link up and share her skill on One Shot Poetry Wednesday!
Belinda's blog is called The Halfway Point: Choosing Positivity. She describes her blog’s primary goal as an exploration "of the things we want (or think we want)." With an aim "to provide a place for candid conversations and questions about the philosophical grey areas in life... The halfway point lies somewhere between the beginning and the end."
of strengthening vulnerability
swelling with each season
You seize and release me
holding on with faith
letting go with doubt
Intimate with transience
I reach, I fall short
conviction and question commingling
I am fiercely loyal
Even proof is no guarantee
With warmth I thrive, yet
I can't connect with another
unless I'm one with you
There you are in surplus
Fiddling with my strength, my weakness
Stunning on the surface, you trespass
Your flimsy promise dilutes my consciousness
You seduce me, assault my senses
Hoping I’m a sucker, no sale
Don’t you know, my trained hippocampus
Remembers your purpose, your evil animus
You create a rumpus, a circus
Your essence, messin’ with my business
I tell myself, I’m making progress
I practice, don’t need your service
But secretly I think of you
Oh, luscious pieces of breathtaking you
