TITLE: Middle Ground

This is a more recent poem of mine that I entered in a contest. In the poem, it is me reflecting on a certain conversation I had with an individual and the contrast between him and I.
In every little word I felt the weight
In every little look I felt a strength,
A strength that saw no middle ground.
Where have I been running around?
It was there in that placid sea.

Many deign to rest their head
In the grayness of that place,
A place where the sharpened end
Is taken off the head of Truth
And blurred in undistinguished mystery.

For me it was my cloak of safety,
A haven from responsibility.
But illusory was its gentle face.
Its true nature was something more
Complex and completely sinister.

It took a man to show me that,
A man who knew his “up” from “down,”
A man who didn’t compromise the edges
Of reality’s blameless headdress
That is its spotless crown.
