Finding you

person searching

Emotions stumble

drunkenly towards the edge-

uninhibited

 

by what others think

floundering and falling down

left in disarray

 

on another day

you will find sunny smiles

when happiness speaks

 

love does that sometimes-

rolling turbulence today

still waters the next

 

while concealed depths

deceive the glassy surface

with images of joy

 

imagined or real-

they infect everyone else

especially you

 

shared feelings find

comfort for loneliness

when they recognize

 

the yearning you have-

a desperate emptiness

needing to drain out

 

before it becomes

like spreading cancerous cells

gnawing at your soul

 

you let down your guard

and invite all of them in-

the bliss and the hurt

 

passion’s pendulum

parades new colors each season-

no rhyme or reason

 

just the wild pursuit

the primeval quest to be

who you truly are.
