The journey to unloving

It was desire coupled with fear,
It was reality and a dire need for freedom,
It was the sheer need for some honest answers,
The uncanny exhaustion of uncertainty and
The insolent diplomacy of feelings.
These were the things that stirred me away from my illusions,
These were the things that led me back home.

  1. Home as a place of unloving describes aptly the sense of accepted loss the poem gives off.
    I love your recent exploration of subtle internal rhymes.
