poem

For The Melancholic

A lantern lights up a dark wall.

A lantern lights up a dark wall.

Between full of joy

And the bitter taste

Of the many emotions

A person master or toy

Is effective or a waste

As the person notions

 Consistent is no part

Nor a given thing

Restless is the soul

To balance is an art

Then you must cling

To what keeps you whole

 No simple answer present

Concrete or symbolic

To accept it or resent
