When the words have all been used

Wondering what can I say, what can I do

Overwhelmed, confused, and quite askew

How do I explain that I love only you

I’ve said it all before, a hundred times

In poetry, verse, and many rhymes

In this moment, feeling quite bemused

I desire words to touch your heart and amuse

Leaving you without doubt or worry

Not over the top or too flowery

Nothing cliche or overworked

Words fresh and new that invoke

All the love I hold in my heart for you

Now and forever only you shall I pursue









Isn’t “confused” really about not understanding why something is as it is?  I remember the first time “confusion” hit me.  I had never been so confused in my life and I was embarrassed to admit it, I seriously didn’t want anyone to know that I was in this state.  I’d never had a problem with decision making, right or wrong, I chose a path.

I couldn’t see the forest for the trees, my head was in a fog,  a swirling vortex pulling me back and forth, and until I made this one seriously important decision that would ultimately change my life’s course, I felt paralyzed.  Round and round it went, whether I was consciously aware of the thought, it was there, lurking, waiting, hovering.

I eventually made the life changing decision, and understood that confusion was a puffy cloud surrounding protecting me until I was able to figure out what I needed to do, wanted to do, what was right for everyone concerned.  Suddenly the day shone brightly, the cloud was gone, and I moved on.

Now when I find I am confused by something, I simply stop and ask myself, why?  What is so confusing about this given situation?  Once I have that answer, I’m able to work my way quickly through.  Simply my thought on “confused”.
