The Between

by Tameko L. Barnette

I position myself there
sometimes unwillingly
sometimes on purpose
it's safe; it's positive.
It's a natural existence.
I don't have to be if I
don't want to be.
From start to finish,
I simply am.
I am whatever, whoever,
wherever, whyever,
however, forever.  I like
it here.  In the center
of a quiet living space,
I designed it myself.
Thoughts, ideas, and
dreams decorate the walls.
Attitude, personality,
and behavior complete
the interior design.
What's on the outside?
Not important.  My reality.
The Between.
