Between extremes

(this is supposed to be syllabic verse, but there's not any selection for the form) I teeter at this moment between wanting to touch you and just walking past by you not looking back, forget you. A blanket of cloud hovers even the sky now teeters between spreading light to all or shrouding the earth in dark. Often I love to linger choosing quiet solitude then suddenly I worry that loneliness might catch me. I live my life in extremes blurring emotions into unclear hues of loves and hates mirror collage to taunt me.

You've captured the extreme contrasts on the page, Josie. I like your write. You seem to be knowledgeable of the appropriate name of the forms. I am just in the experimental stage.
