Grasping to the sides of dreams for life

desperately trying to avoid sliding into days

that blend together.

Sudden bursts of moods

like the bloom of a flower sped up.

Heaves of emotion to cry

(when is it ever the opposite?

Like, why can’t I have huge bursts of emotion to laugh spontaneously?).

Then calm.

Clouds moving across the sky.

Like what happens to thirst after water.
