normality a place i have no wish to visit i love the seesaw of my psyche for every low i must endure i am granted in return a time of ecstasy when the world is crisp, defined i see what others miss and nothing is impossible
for every tear i shed for every long dark night for the times my heart grows cold and my mind exists in some gray limbo in equal part i gain emotions ripe and full explosive in their joyfulness and passion beyond asking
