Roller Coaster of Emotions


Overloaded with emotions
And they're wearing me down
I feel like the carnival
Has come to town..

I'm riding the roller coaster
Wouldn't you know
I'm hanging on tight
And I'm in the front row

Going up and down
Going fast then slow
When will it stop
Where will it go

It's making me sick
I can't take this ride
I want to get off
I want to go hide

Why do I keep riding
When it brings me down
And why does it keep
Going round and round

    Your writings are very smooth and flowing. Strange as it may sound,
    I don't see this roller coaster ride effect in the writing of your poems.
    Hang on in there girl don't let it throw you like the rodeo. Keep on riding high
    with your poetry. Loved this! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
