The In-Between

In the reflection of light off of the fallen snow

In the spaces between the stars that glimmer in the dark

In-between breaths, in the pause before an exhale

Is where I seek for deeper, underlying meaning.

In each sunset sigh of both awe and despair

When I feel both inspired and terrified by my existence

As my feet walk forward but my heart draws me back

I find the willpower to both disintegrate and accept.

In those precarious hours of sleeplessness

When the world is quiet but the mind is restless and loud,

I allow myself to open the vaults of hidden suffering

Trusting in the space in-between mind and soul.
