Wilderness

Wilderness





I find myself longing
as we struggle
to stabilize
For those days
when there was
nothing to compromise

Going here and there
our excitement unbridled
We traveled the same road
Stumbling now and again
but always together
Carrying each other’s load

A life-changing event
so random
it was hard to believe
Neither of us
saw it coming
Difficult to conceive

Now we wander
in this wilderness
of perpetual confusion
Choosing solitude
Pushing the other away
Living life in seclusion

How do we
find our way back
to the way it was before?
Connecting with each other
is the key to opening
hearts once more

        it may conquer hard times but it’s often baseless in regard to addictions …

      Yes I agree. Some have to wait a lifetime 😔 This poem is about two people who had that strong connection but had drifted apart and were struggling to get back to where they once were. Thank you so much for reading ☺️
