Poetry

Within

And the thoughts…
They invade like locusts on a warm summer night
Stopping me in my tracks
Surrendering me to my knees
Hopeless
Confused
Struggling for answers
Advice from friends
Guidance from strangers
The answer within
Not knowing where to look
Just look
Look inside
But where
My heart?
My head?
My soul?
The answer within
Nothing within
Stillness
Quiet
Alone
No answer within
Within is only a jumbled ball of yarn
A mess of kicked over wooden blocks
Spilled milk beginning to sour
Nothing within
No answer
No hope
Nothing
