Clandestine Distance

There is a distance between who I am on the outside and who lives inside of me. An unknown space, clandestine, linked by me, pearls of my being strung together in the movement of my being, that is undiscoverable and indescribably leaves me apart from the presentation of my self to the world. How I am received is not up to me. All of my experiences-emotions-time-faith-efforts-thoughts-responses-perceptions fill this space with a miasma of concealed connection. It is my hope that what comes through this space, what filters from the inside to the outside, is filled with truth, love, compassion because what is inside was created and formed from those very characteristics.

    I believe this is the first thing I’ve ever read that was written from the PoV of a quark.

      I will take this as a compliment…I was actually thinking this is really real for me so I believe I’ve officially been named a quark! LOL seriously, though, the challenge was to choose a word from the list of last year’s pro
      mpts and these two would not quit wrestling with each other so…here
      we are.

  3. I think about this often, the inside me, and the one others perceive externally. I too hope there is a connection and that some of the good I believe I am comes thru for others to witness. I often feel like I am a well-kept secret, that truly they have no idea! This was a really great introspective piece and very well written!

    Oh yes! Lots of emotional discoveries for me lately so this kind of flowed from that. Thanks for responding.:-)

    It’s something I’ve given quite a lot of though to. How we are percieved, … what goes on within … what we want people to see … what they chose to see … It’s facinating. Very though provoking.
