    I am an April Fool~
    that started a few months ago...
    and now the jokes on me
    cause the - Newness done wore off
    and
    I'm
    sitting
    in
    the
    front...row...seat of an EmOtIoNaL-RoLLerCoaSteR
    gyrating and circulating
    on derailing tracks of
    discontentment; by myself
    I'm going eastbound to no-where
    in my mind's eye
    I'm making mental
    memorandums
    as this boxcar
    takes a nose dive
    my directions' should have taken
    me toward the crossroads
    of fulfillment and satisfaction
    but it hasn't~
    in an average of 20 days & 15 mph
    I was a passenger in a
    street car named "DESIRE"
    after taking several trips with you
    we spun out of control-
    the route I took implied discombobulation
    teetering in limbo; straight
    ahead is a Dead End Zone
    resulting from lack of adequate communication
    I'm flaming inside
    a cart that glides
    into a never-ending slope
    FIRE! FIRE! HELP-HELP...
    I'm blazing at warp speed down a one way strip
    that for some strange reason
    you had completely blocked off
    this ride is moving to fast
    I cannot control it,
    turn it around nor console it,
    comfort is not an option
    the inscription of your street sign
    said "N2 Do Not Enter",
    ...but I couldn't read you
    maybe I didn't even want to
    cause this train was
    al-ready in motion
    moving too fast
    for me to slow down
    or even to stop it
    STOP IT!
    SLOW IT DOWN!
    ...............HALT...........
    No traction for concatenation;
    caught upside down - right side up
    I was absorbed by your
    whirlwind retraction -
    in(RETRO)action
    ...this car, comprised of only I
    that was once grounded;
    astounded; now maps illusions
    on trails of disbelief when you were the tour (guy)ide
    I want to get "out" of something
    that I was never truly "in"...
    I "gave" something that was not
    mine to "share"...
    I "took" something that was not
    mine to "have"...
    and
    that's...just...what-left-me-EXPOSED
    when
    I
    sat
    in
    the
    Front.............Row.............Seat
    of this exhausting, EmOtIoNaL-ROLLerCoaSteR
    once considered a streetcar named Desire
    now it promises more pain than pleasure
    but if it pulls up close to
    the next stop -
    I'll jump out
    cause I don't see a "win-win" situation,
    risks of injury - in all directions
    if I get off with my feeings
    in tact...
    then I've done what I could to
    minimize the damage
    that you have created
    within my
    SOUL

    I've resolved to know that the tracks do stop somewhere...

    Keep perusing!
    Not saying it was ever an intentional thing for you but,
    I'm sure we all have done this to someone before!!
    In some way or shape...

    Thanx for the comps
