Emotional rollercoaster

Dear mind, haven’t you messed up enough?

Haven’t you magnified every moment of depression?

Sometimes you subdue our rationale

Sometimes, you cook up an elaborate fun fair


When one’s done being the sharpest sword on display

Let us for once, enjoy this funny play

While we tire of guarding our fortress

From our sanity, we digress


As funny as this voluntary insanity seems

It is very much engrossing

If left unguarded, will suck us all in

To a bottomless whirlpool of psychosis


Don’t we all wish that emotions

Was just a way of entertainment?

A sad/happy/fight filled movie

A few hours, well spent?


If only this heart of ours, would

Just relax, unhinge and unwind

If only this naïveté would die

While complete numbness, is what we strive


If only we knew if the other is earnest

Or just looking to use you for their tempest

If only those moments of connection

Was just a co-incidence, sans association?


If only, one moves their piece

Will this game of ours go somewhere?

If not, these moments will fade

And will resume our boredom and despair?


Is the ego our general or our Trojan horse?

Is it keeping us fortified?

Are the emotions our building blocks?

Or kamikazes, causing inner suicide?


While this fuzzy heart yearns for a wild gesture

A sign of sorts, may be a fixture

When all one gets, is giant leaps followed by silence

It’s time to step off the emotional roller coaster


This was for this week’s 3WW

    Best to know when to step off that roller coaster! Maybe the tea cup ride is safer!

    Yeah, but there is not much excitement in the tea cup ride now, is there? 😉
