Gentle Reprieve

The ache and pain of longing
The tears of joy and sadness
The one thing that keeps me going

Yet also encourages me to leave.
I can't begin to say
The words that hid a message

A subliminal phrase that may
Define all of my feelings.
I look above to find a clue

Hoping to ease my confusion
Still…I know not what to do
My search is only for a gentle reprieve.
