An Emotion In Time

by James Zealy

In a moment of emotive space
I searched for matching grace
Not sure of an outcome
Curiosity led me among
Same self others abound

Out of the ether appeared
An unexpected voice clear
A questioning apparition
Testing and teasing definitions
In a purely analytical style
That sparked my guile

Seeking answers I parry
With an intellectual query
That leads to a joust of language
Amidst simmering tears of anguish
Emptiness waits for a moment
Before energy begins to ferment

Bubbling anxiety tests fate
Anxiety that gives way
To a gradual draining of want
Supplanting hopeless rants
With cascading collapse
Of barriers to engaging synapse

Emptiness gives way to mystery
Around feelings of history
That supplants sorrow felt
Easing a transition from bereft
To a reality of impending care
That says something is there

I let my instincts take me
To wherever this may lead
Determined as is my nature
To never leave my future
To anyone else’s feat
or my happiness incomplete
