Of thought and living...

Walking past. That moment of memory and treacherous consideration, there where any thought of hesitation stops all forward motion.

Standing in silent stillness, a world which is foreign rushes by so quickly.

What is willed from within is of slow occurrence of what lies ahead, that which can be managed and accepted.

It is always found in those places of frightful reflection, a space of winding ways and mountains impossible to climb; those understood with living and time.

I am merely waiting at a curb just feet outside my doorway, one of shelter but none of home. And the cliff I stand before is the edge, that of one step in the decision to go forward.

My first thought was agoraphobia. The front door representing safety more than home. And then alienation came in to I'm probably way off line here, but it was a thought-provoking write, LE.
