Expecting a wall

Here’s a short poem about a new friendship that I’ve recently started. I’ve always defined myself through difficulty and through overcoming hardship but for the first time I’m realising that some things, like relationships, are perhaps meant to be easy. The struggle, the fight, that’s always been familiar – but perhaps it’s time to start doing things differently.

 

expecting a wall

I fall through

into this new space

 

it’s dark

and I’m uncertain of the dimensions

 

how far can I go

and how far does this go?

 

it’s a new space

contentment

negotiation

intersubjective co-creation

 

the silence rings in my ears

it’s so peaceful here!

 

no crashes, no bangs

no conflict, no walls

 

I’m not defined;

I define myself

and so do you

 

it’s unfamiliar

 

but I’m an adventurer

so I think I might stay

a while
