Perplexity - Poem by akingbehin daniel murphy

Perplexity
Sailing through the sea
Dancing in the wind
Listening to the music play
from a distant town around
Still on the seat of wonder as
I try to discern the ‘forest' of
my thought
Lying in the cool arms of
time and sailing through the
dew of thought
I realize; but sometimes……
There you came; though you
walked your way but I was
caught captive
Yes, yes I knew that if God
endorses that someday I will
find you
But it was my last
expectation to see you soon
I cried, yes I cried because
you threw me in a state of
confusion
Though I expected joy, but
‘joy' came to steal my joy
But; is this really you or
apparition?
