Near Numbed

Near Numbed

A Poem by Quill
"

stay away from the extreme

"

It's difficult to admit to fading affection

Some fear it and refuse to acknowledge its occurrence 

Others simply hope for a return of the feelings

Both accounts could easily lead to ruin

For one must come to terms with reality

And address its occurrence as needed

So how is this to be addressed? 

How can one ascribe the required action?

It's by seeking how one reached that point

And upon close inspection I had a realization

The emotions loosen its grips at too extremes

One comes from a place which lacks firmness 

Such a mind becomes anemic and ultimately pathetic

The other comes from a place of too much hardness

Such a mind becomes nihilistic and ultimately brutal

Whatever the case both ends in pain and regret

Therefore one must construe a defined line on both parts

A fine line which separates empathy and weakness

Another line which separates strength from ruthlessness

With such a disposition proper unions are built

Ruin is abated and living is brilliant 

Only then can we live in ingenuity

verdicts between the mind and the heart are never easy to reach. you've captured that case quite well here. it's never easy when we come to a fork in the road. fear, regret, loyalty - so many things involved. we can only do what we feel/think is right. we must weigh all carefully and keep keenly aware of the signs which guide our way - the middle road as you suggest ... :)
