La Verita
I am a half kuwaiti/half american girl living in Kuwait. I am perpetually suspended in the granite hollow that fills the space between two worlds... Not quite who I am, not quite who I want to be... Cat-lover, poet, music-nut. I currently hold a PHD in both BS and Smartass. In short, I pitch my tent in the median of life..

A Pause for Poetic Indulgence


In Limbo
------------

Where do you stand when your soul is in limbo
And you’re waiting for your life to begin?
Where does the line start?
Do I have to draw a number?
How far down are they?

Where do you focus your attention when fantasies
begin to bore you
and you realize that life has long since followed…?
When people don’t come through the way they’re supposed to
And dreams fail to materialize

We spend our days drenched in deceit
Avarice … Slovene in our pursuit of fancy and flight
A nation of sloth… Hungry for the quiet respite that
Laziness seems to offer
A diversion of attentions, a convergence of sins

These words, dimensions and layout
Remind me of a sideways heartbeat…
Erratic and listless
Rising and falling in waves of emotion
I feel a certain kinship with the inconsistent

Life is all about abstracts
Things of variation
Finding comfort in the ambiguous
And loving the ease with which you find yourself
lost in the lifelines of the ones you love.
