On The Border Line


On the border line,
Can't make a decision and talk
Can't stay silent,
Words stuck in your mind and throat,
To speak them out you are afraid;
Fear of criticism and misunderstanding
Controls you,
Swallowing your power,
Then you get a chance to speak your mind
You open your mouth with closed teeth,
Still in your head
Many thoughts trying to shadow each other,
Curtains before your eyes
Saying in a half whisper
You cannot, it is over,
So,
You shut your mouth firmly
Without getting a word out,
Or even uttering a sound
Still on the border line
Helplessly,
Ending on the same point,
As things have been, they remain
Without freeing your mind and soul
Or reaching your goal.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
