National Poetry Writing Month 2017, Day 15

My day 15 poem for National Poetry Writing Month uses the prompt from—to write ‘a poem that reflects being in the middle of something.’

Both ends against the middle

They’re just moments, really,
come and gone
mere stops along an undefined route

I don’t remember the one
the other is too large to see
until it disappears against the noise

It’s here where life is spent
dreams persist
and the waiting feels endless
