Roller-coaster by johnglefury(m): 9:34am On May 08, 2018

There are times when I am

As lively as the alarm tone,

Like the morning sun glistering

Through with thick thorns passing

Through every tavern that stands

In it's way. Trodding forward

One stride at a time like a little

Child taking baby steps.

Until I fall

With a heap into the sea,

Unsure, and sadness pressed

Down upon me,


To crush me

With it's unbearable weight,

Squeezing out all of the little light

That was left. Then the clouds came,

Dark and deepening and heavy with

Anger building up from within

Like a balloon being pumped with air

And then...

It burst out of it's cage

Releasing with it torrential pains,

And sorrows and regrets.

Taking it's time before subsiding.

Oh! What ecstasy!

Then the rainbows appear

Out of the blues, each colour

Completing a spectrum as the

Sky brightens, itching

For the cycle to begin all over.

It's a rollercoaster.

I'm a newbie. Just 2 months writing. Aggressive but constructive criticisms are welcomed.
