Mood Swings

Legs pumping, swinging through
The warm caressing air
Skin bronze from the delightful sun
Laughter, rich and melodious
The sky darkens
Gloomy black replaces the
Gradient blue… rain swooshing down
Instead of deep warmth
Legs trapped in midair
Swing poised slightly above ground
Rocking back and forth
Back and forth, Back and forth
Tears come crashing down
Breaking down a wall of lies
Anxiety pulling me into a dark abyss
I want to escape but I can’t
Sun now shining,
Pumping, legs rising
I feel filled with unexplainable joy
I don’t know why
But I don’t care
Clouds, soft and fluffy
Whisking me away in my dreams
Grass, ever so green,
Birds chirping merrily
All while swinging on the
Rusty playground swings
Feeling good, not gonna complain
I like this so much
Even if I know that the
Those dark moods will come again soon
I am not gonna focus on that
I despise, I accept
I am afraid, I am obsessed
With understanding
And ignoring
These awful swings that
Are falling apart
And taking me with them.
