Unexplained longing.


Off Course

by leilaskidmore

There is this sense of longing.

There is a pull towards something That I cannot explain.

There are tears which well up

Out of nowhere.

As though they are not my tears at all

But instead are the heartbreak expression Of a woman in mourning.

Missing her lover. Needing his touch,

Which is nowhere to be found except in her dreams.

I do not weep for a lover lost,

I weep instead for things unknown. This sorrow wells up inside

For desires I cannot express.

Because the words cannot be found. I am convinced the words do not exist.

I look to the heavens for guidance.  

The North Star shines it's Soft white light against the black surround.

The path is clear, I only must forge ahead.

Straight, into the light, And into safety.

But my head turns each time the sorrow hits.

And my direction shifts Along with it.

And so I remain.  

Off course.
