Swings



Swaying temperament
Harbouring infinite possibilities
Clinging on something immensely
Or letting go so easily

Sometimes
Out of world
Happy and sane
Sometimes
Upset and insane

One starts everything
Knowing it will end
One arrives somewhere
Knowing essence to leave

Causing pain that never heal
Hailing something that never appease
Smile and tears
Warm hi and empty goodbyes

Everything and anything
Crossing paths undeniable
Self loving or loathing
With a reason persisting
