Riding a sine wave, Where the dependent variable Is your emotions Is hardly what I call fun. It’s a pain, Constantly going up And down And up And down. The ups sound fun, But they aren’t. To the surprise of many, You prefer the downs. They’re calm. You get to sleep. Your feet are still grounded in reality (For the most part). But the ups Are so chaotic One second experiences ecstasy The next, terror One second later, rage. You get so used to following This wild function, That you forget there’s a third option: Hanging out around the midline. When do I get to go back To doing that?
