'Clumsy Me'

I wanted to run 
but it was all in vain
you were just a little bit faster 

I wanted to cut you off 
but you already invaded my sense of being 

In between the unknown 
things made themselves known 
all the invisible 
Became visible 
everything I wanted 
was right there for the taking 
and yet 
I couldn't take it - 

too afraid it would slip out of my hands


*Ps:nope I am not in love, just sleeping in intervals*

    hey pretty face, inbetween the unknown is where we will always be. and you being a woman having to dance in high heels backwards don't have it any easier. just accept the upper hand and be done with it. i don't know who has the upper hand either!!!

    These kind of poems open up a door to your beautiful soul. Love is crazy , just when you say ahhhh I get it It changes the game and the rules. A puzzle with no directions or matching pieces at times. But when it comes love it back with everything you have Cape Town Honey. Please correct Arild on how it's said lol. Love all day to you. Michael

    Very compelling verse, Wilma, especially "In between the unknown, things make themselves known." The wisdom is out there, waiting for you to grasp it. How sad that you feel the things you want are slipping out of your hands. Cute title too! I hope you get a good night's rest soon, my friend. Love, Carolyn

    Who is worthy of a heart to get cut open wide. To bleed the soul of every part to just be left outside. When winds of change come back around. Who's to say if your heart will pound. With beats of love to welcome back. A foolish rhyming poetic hack.

    I am laughing hard at Kash's comments below...he knows WOMEN, right?...ha ha...Yes, you are in love...or were...and this is so beautiful how you articulate your rationalizing heart, Wilma! I read it out loud and I felt lovesick too! ha ha. Gwendolen
