Some relationships are like a day of skiing. One climbs, one admires the view, one falls down, one repeats, one goes home cold and tired and climbs into a warm bathtub.


The hollow empty feeling
Starts with a kiss
And blossoms into something
That’s the opposite of bliss
Yes I have beheld
Many finest treasures
Frolicked in the garden
Of exotic pleasures

You pull me up
You knock me down
Touch the sky
Hit the ground
You’re an uplifting downfall
An unexpected phone call
A deflated beach ball
An old, tattered dream doll
You’re a bone-chilling downpour
A tantalizing green door
A habit-forming coke whore
Who knows what comes next?

You’re a bipolar freak
With a capital “B”
A shining example
From abnormal psychology
Whose great grandfather
Must have been Sigmund Freud
It’s so bleeding hard
Not to get annoyed


The agony
And the ecstasy
We’ll have to see
What the next five minutes brings
