I Stand

I Stand
By Jennifer K.

I stand feeling nothing
Yet everything at once.
I know not what I’m thinking,
I am hidden from the sun.
He holds me close, yet moves away.
The dawn has marked a brand new day.
I live in the dark, and I’m craving the light,
Embracing the morning, dismissing the night.
He stands before me, many miles away.
I walk down the street underneath a sky– gray.
I stand, feeling nothing,
Yet everything at once.
I know not what I’m seeing,
I’m blinded by the sun.
He stands in the sun, I’m lost in the dark.
Consider your feelings and with them depart.
I go, feeling nothing
Yet everything at once.
I know not where I’m going.
I stand.
