Adrift in a sea of high emotions
No sunrise on the horizon to be found
Caution blew away with the high winds hours ago
Hearing the waves pounding on the rocks
Only thing he could safely do was ground himself against the current
Releasing the weight, he felt it plunge deep and hold, but for how long
Racing towards a climax
Everything slows down
Losing oneself in the moment
Every sensation is amplified
And the pressure continues to build
So when you plunge over the edge
Everything feels of so right
Melancholy was his mistress and muse. He worshiped her day and night, always trying to make things right, but it never quite worked. He felt he came up just short no matter how hard he tried. She had been his first love. One day he decided to take the plunge and proposed. That was the last day he ever saw her.
He now felt empty inside. That’s when he found Depression. She moved in, and they became inseparable. Once he thought about breaking up with her, but he just couldn’t bring himself to do it. Till death did they part.
On the horizon sits infinity
Challenging my prominence in the universe
Encouraging me to flee back to the finite
And yet here I am, my feet at the very edge
Now should I take the plunge?
