Uncertain beats

Uncertain beats

A Chapter by Lyn Anderson
"

errant thoughts collected

"
-dreams don't lie

you never lie
but you do
hold back.

I know
in my heart
it really isn't me (it's you)
but in my head
I fear I lack
something ...

what exactly are you
waiting for?
a special mean
kind of jealous love?
someone you can be
proud of?

dreams don't lie
it is me
you would miss (yet)
why do I worry
each kiss
is goodbye?


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

something real


pale notions
of ecstasy
passions past
and pretty
without substance
yet
there is you.
something real
I fret
I cannot
hold
onto.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
the irony of wonder

while you wonder
if there's someone
other
than me,
there's a line
of others
waiting
to prove
they are better
than you.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
rules bent to breaking

sometimes it seems
you work so hard
to draw your lines
you forget
what defines
you and me.
rules bent to
past points
of breaking
feeling,
without faking ...

the only person
more afraid
of what might
or might not be
than you
is me.

Honest and powerful poetry shared Lyn.
"the only person

is me."
I liked all the poetry. The above lines. Dangerous places to fall into to. Thank you for sharing the amazing words and your thoughts.

pleasure........
apt title for these thoughts collected... "uncertain" ... each one filled with doubt and maybe I will lose you.. I like them all but that last one and these words:
"you work so hard
to draw your lines
you forget
what defines
you and me."
this just made me really sad as I read... that it is so difficult to have love and be in love

maybe because recently I watched again "Untamed Heart" with Marisa Tomei/Christian Slatter... atragic love story... anyway, I do love the way ou share your thoughts KL

There always is that uncertainty, that doubt, you can never truly know the other, maybe not even truly know yourself. Well done KL.

Thank you darlin, you always get me.
Kind of all over the place and yet all are good. My favorite was the third poem.
