Transcending Limbo

Transcending Limbo

In an incredible time

Between tragedy and solitude

Finding myself

Often becoming the in-between

difficult but demanding

When along comes Limbo

To tell which course

Or route should be ridden upon

What middle ground is posed

and caution offered

When you proceed to the fork

In the road to an open question mark

Near the expressway of possible answers

You choose the pathway

You pick the poison

Even when choice is avoided

By default


You choose anyway

      1. Thanks for the words! Poetry has never really come easy to me. But yours seems like you create this magic without any issue! You’re amazing!

      2. It means so much to me that you think my writing is incredible. I don’t feel very confident to write most times, short stories and other works, but I’m very confident in my poetry, word-smithing skills. My short stories or series don’t get as much attention as my poetry, so I have not written short stories lately. I would definitely like to write short stories and series again, but unfortunately, I have to put much more time into writing these. Thank you again for your thoughts!
