A Middle Man


“A Middle Man” jcr

Home again…but where is home?
A place in your heart…the place you come from…the place you are?
All are a bit right…and all are right for some…but what for me?
Some say…in some ways…each of these…
How do I know that that home is right for me?...
Some…I…me…;
A portrait…
Man,
Early twenties,
Coffee, pad and pen close at hand
Distinguishable features?
Brown hair, cut short and tapered all around
Brown eyes…any scars?
On the outside there’s one on the right side of his chin…
Top right of his lip another…but that’s unseen,
One, more fresh and clear on the side of his nose…
Left side…not too bad really…seen much worse.
Scars on the inside?
Outward expressions don’t show what he feels…
Is he a good man? Look deep…probe movements…read;
Soul and mind…heart too?
Looks a bit out of place…military…but none around here;
At home…and yet; not…this is…yet not his home
He is alone,
Seems in character that way…yet not
Like a part of him is missing…being alone is not his practice;
But reality for now.
Can you see…does he show…if he wishes to remain that way?
Actions say no…manner and appearance say yes…
Both seem right some how.
A middle man…a team mate…an enemy?...no
Looks, acts, can see; he’s more of a friend than a foe…
A middle man
Looking for the right road…
A middle man
At, and yet, not home…
A middle man.
Shall it always be so?...
only One does know…
