sliding through the gaps

I picked a sensation-
turned it around,
I let it mingle into me.

when the unexpected turn came,
my mind went blank for a while-
but I did not pick any weapons to fight;
choosing to let it go

"I create worlds in my mind
they all fall apart
yet I  go on creating more"

Hi Gautami,thats amazing! 'cos I just wrote - 'We all create our own worlds, some are more believable than others.' Great minds think alike, sometimes...

Nice 55, Gautami!

Letting go is an absolute must. Otherwise we would have no room to take in more. Good one, Gautami,

Some of mine don't fall apart. When I'm lucky, I can turn them into books.

A very good bittersweet poem with the letting go part.

great :)
your mind will always create, whether you let it or not, so better to just let it do its thing :)

I like this. The unexpected can't be planned for. We don't know the choice until it comes.
