I Feel


I feel
On the brink, but also in a rut
On the way somewhere, but glued to the spot
Just about to sink, but treading water still
About to utter the words on the tip of my tongue, but choking on them too
About to take a step, but limbs strangely immobilized
I feel hopeful, but bizarrely cynical too
Warm, but acid often rolls off my loving tongue
Waiting, but impatiently powering on
Burdened, but weight absorbed by determination not to bow
Restless, but dead calm permeates my being

As long as I feel, I know I’m still alive
My feelings are the pulse throbbing away on the wrist of my life
Signifying the beating of my heart
And if my heart can go on, then so can I
