In Between

Am I coming or going?

Is this staying or leaving?

Why does healing feel like grief?

It would be so much easier to grasp for one thing
or the other

It would be so much easier to drive a stake in the ground
and claim something as my own

But my hands are empty

My heart is open

And I’m not running
