This Is Different

This, is different.
The quotidian reality of
My life,
Never prepared me for this---
The absurd coupling of love and dread,
Always taunting and complicated,
Joy and pain, inseparable.
I don't know what to do,
Or if I can do anything.
I don't  even know if I like it here or not.
---Stay or go---
---Go or stay---
It must be decided somehow,
And soon,
I do know
That I cannot swim upstream much longer.
No, I can not. 
This, is different.

    Hi Beverly, your poem speaks to me. I've been there myself, one foot in sand and one in water.............feels impossible to choose, what to do, what will the outcome be? And the effect of the choice one need to make (sooner or later) . Your poem carry so much emotions, I see also desperation in it. I think it's very well written, it feels like it comes straight from the heart. All the best, Gry
