Currents, Emotions, Oceans And Tides - Poem by David Whalen

In torrents of emotions
Are humans destined
To dwell

Thoughts but mental motions
Given to rise, tide
and swell

Of momentary madness
To tidal pools
of peace

To soothing waves
Of goodness…
Emotions without cease

Envy, anger,
jealousy,
Wonder

Riptides rising…
Then pulling
Us under

Torrents of emotion
Are of what our thoughts
Consist

A flood of feelings
We cannot
Resist

E'en in our sleep
The current
seems

To seep into
Our deepest
Dreams

We're naught
But helpless flotsam
Tossed

Adrift upon
Emotions hapless
Sea

Unknowing slaves
To reason
Lost

At least
So it seems…
To me
