Hanging

you keep me hanging
by a string
a thread
thread of life
thread of hope
I hope
these nagging thoughts
are nothing
but idle worry
fantasy
fear
of being played
for a fool
fool for love
fool for you
mismatch
between expectation
and
desire
wish
dream
of being with you
in all honesty
without assumptions
needs
jealousies
of what can’t ever be
so that we take
whatever comes
at its own pace
without looking
for subtext
context
pretext
just you
and me
and truth
letting go
and coming back
together
whenever
forever
amen

This is a Three Word Wednesday post.

mismatch between expectation and desire has me thinking about the way we relate to reality. Thoughtful poem.

it is easier to take someone at their word that worry about subtexts.
