The Space In-between

Written by: Emma Mantle

It's the space in-between
that gets me to thinking
My spirits do rise
and then get to sinking

My mind starts to wonder
and reality fades
thoughts now run riot
and won't do as they're bade!

Possibilities seem endless
an idyll to dream
then reality wakes up
and starts being mean!

I give into doubts
and feel myself sinking
for it's the space in-between
that gets me to thinking.
