    goes good
    feels good
    i'm good

    then...

    crash down
    break down
    melt down

    then...

    fire burns
    fear burns
    soul burns

    then...

    back good
    understood
    God's good

    then...

    ruined life
    wrenched strife
    why life?

    then...

    sun shines
    blue sky
    birds fly

    then...

    rain drenched
    heart pinched
    bolts lit

    then...

    goes good
    feels good
    sounds good

    then...

    back to
    no truth
    life rules

    it...

    i'm down
    i drown
    right now

    life's a *****...

    Poet,

    I completely understand. But thank GOD he gave us the gift of writing. I understand when you are riding high on a cloud, feeling lovely, then have it all come crashing down on you, out of nowhere. I am a survivor of this very thing. Keep your head up, you will rise out of this and be better because of it. Peace and blessings.

    I feel ya here. Seems like when things get back on track, bam, problems arise once again. Liked the back and forth movement that went well with the words you scribed.
