Welfare Reversal

Welfare Reversal

A Poem by The Watcher
"

Feels nice to be out of the shadows for once.

"
Despite how much I...

Weep in loneliness,
Wallow in misery,
Writhe in pain,
Or wail in isolation...

One fact never changes: I am a human.

I must confess to a gimmick in my life,
My river of time sprawls with twists and turns.
Although it may flow smoothly,
Hardships will come sooner or later.

I call this Welfare Reversal.

A month of painful emotional rapids,
Followed by a gentle peaceful tide.
Then another reversal, and another...
Lasting a month or two for each cycle.

So why am I speaking this to you?

Because for a long time,
I suffered alone in my life.
Then something caused a reversal,
And today I now feel secure.

Love has a habit of causing many reversals.

These switches can sprawl both ways.
The revival of an old love brings calm,
While the end of a bond creates strife.
Peaceful tides or mournful rapids...

My river of time flows on.

The past few months were difficult,
But my period of suffering has ended.
At least for a while anyways.
So until the next reversal...

My heart shall bask in a paradise of happiness.

In life, with love...
