Poetry Project 2017: Day 169

Dread and yearning,
one place and another
trying to occupy the same spot,
trying to bend reality.

Yearning and fearing,
worrying about losing,
wanting what I have,
and don’t.

Dread and distracting,
a trick to hide,
trying to focus on now,
trying to prevent future.

Fear and distraction,
all I have left
if I forget to want-
I can’t forget to want.
