Center – A Poem by Brandon White

A free verse poem that arrived fully realized and just in time. I would love your thoughts!


There's a deep dissatisfaction
within me.

It keeps me hungry, curious; it pulls my introverted self

towards the world
in hopes of capturing

whatever might quell
such a feeling.

It delivers me
to songs, poems,

wild wide-eyed things
not meant for taming,

but glimpses of a meeting
of the needle points.

That elusive center
from which our hearts

came sparking
into existence.

  1. I think it ends very well, but the beginning/middle is a little plain. Having said that, it’s so serene and yet simultaneously edgy, and I think that would appeal to a lot of the fans of softer meaningful stuff.
