The Complexity of Feeling


how can it be I feel this way

it makes no sense to me

a melancholy morning

then joy at half past three

a kaleidoscope of happiness

edged with a lace of tears

passion’s incongruity

does catch me unawares

a time of life condition

or something strange – more dire

dichotomy of tenderness

enveloped in a fire

it burns a path inside me

keeps me alive these days

but when the flame does dwindle

enter darkness and malaise

Can People Feel Happy and Sad at the Same Time?

And I assure you I am running the gamut of emotions now! You are a sweetheart, and I wish you were close enough to give you a hug. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ xoxo
