LOST

Seeking answers,
Finding confusion.
.
Seeking comfort,
Embracing illusion
.

Seeking the future,
Losing the past.
.

Seeking stability,
Sinking fast.
.

Turning, ever turning,
So many questions burning,
.

Branding pain inside
Nowhere left to hide.
.

Impossible to stay,
Unthinkable to go.
.

No “right thing to do”
Family breakdown,
.

Catch 22.

Catch 22 every which way you turn isn't it?
Hope you find a way through it all Cathy.
Lovely writing.

Matt-Man said...

Nice job Cathy. I hope you find your road map. Cheers!!

val said...

Such beautiful and skilful writing. I hope you find your right answer.

Excellent, Cathy. You describe life to a “T.” As for Catch-22, I have come to believe it is normal these days, in many ways.

Travis said...

It is quite ironic that we often find pleasure in art that might have its root in pain.

This is quite good.

Flash said...

I'm sure the right way will come...

Fantastic and beautiful 55!

painful, poignant;
beautiful and heartbreaking

Miss Understood said...

The fear of making a decision is far, far worse than actually making it. x

No place to turn sometimes. I know the feeling all too well.

Jocelyn said...

What a tough time you're in. I'm really feeling for you--so glad yo have this blog to express some of the pain.

Crap.

Ali said...

Change can be scarey, but not nearly as scarey as the thought of it.

Great writing, as always Cathy

Pauline said...

I have always loved your writing. You are an amazing person, Cathy, and you have more friends and admirers than you probably realize. You make life better for the people that you touch, and life WILL get better for you, my friend.

MATT-MAN. I am probably holding it upside-down.

VAL. I don't think there is a right answer, just lots of half wrong ones.

Enemy of the Republic said...

Yes, that line is the clincher--Catch 22. I get you.

Sugar Smacks said...

Cathy, I'm inspired to write a Flash 55 again! At first I didn't even realize this was a 55...I just thought it was a great poem!

I'll try to remember this coming Friday...

Thanks for visiting me a while back, I was MIA.
