Riding on this Rollercoaster | Short Poem. No. 69

I’ve been riding on this rollercoaster.
Except, this one takes a very long time.
Every day, the end is never closer.
It leaves me wondering when I’ll be fine.

I’m always in an up and down process.
But, over time, I’ve learned all of its turns.
There’s no surprises in any of this.
Just the dimming light of what my heart yearns.

Anxiety’s rising, crashing my brain!
Faster! Faster! It’s pumping through my heart!
Just in time, depression will come again.
And when the ride ends, I’m back to the start.

Just another pill to drop down the mouth.
Hope for the best before leaving my house.

    1. Thanks Krishna Priya. This was one of those poems where you just write what you feel, not necessarily how you aspire to feel. Even the last line is a half-hearted hope. That’s just how you feel sometimes. . .

      1. Yes and that’s ok – it is better to see and accept things as they are than to always live in an aspirational or ideal world. Wish you a beautiful day – with generous drops of hope, light and love.
