Pendulum

My heart sways like a pendulum

endlessly swinging back and forth

conflicting emotions at either end

tick

tock

joy

sorrow

Time passes, things change

but also stay the same.

~

A battle constantly waging

thoughts continuously at war

tick

tock

hope

despair

Time passes, things change

but also stay the same.

~

So weary of this struggle

the pendulum’s unending swing

forever existing just outside of the threshold of relief

tick

tock

light

darkness

Time passes, things change

but also stay the same.

  1. I love this, Julie. You really know how to express what you’re feeling. I’ve been there, (sometimes still find myself there) so can feel it.

  2. I think you should re-blog this poem, Julie. It’s so skillfully composed… I love the emotive flow AND the juxtaposition.

    I absolutely love these lines:
    “Time passes, things change
    But also stay the same”

    That IS so true.
