The pendulum unable to swing
jumps hither/thither entwined
with the strings of emotive vibes
dangling free from the mental plane.
Up/down/around like lightening in sky
and joyous the crowds down below
but suddenly a thunderous return
shatters surface composure.
And in the longing for a gentle swing
detachment seeks to be known
and as it steps out from the shadows
I pull it closer and in.
How amazing it is like a cape to be worn
and a blanket of intricate weave
but when it coils like a snake deep within
I know freedom is soon to be.
And that snake is fed with intent
to witness but not be entwined
with those strings of emotive vibes
dangling free from the mental plane!
