Inhale, Exhale (Pendulum)

I’m a pendulum of emotion
An incessant metronome
Tick tock, I swing to and fro
From all one to all alone.

 

Inhale,
Exhale.
Inhale,
Exhale.

 

Trust the process, trust our souls
But I’ve lost myself in the folds.
There I lie sleepless and unstirred
Breathing in and out the hopeless burn.

 

Inhale,
Exhale.
Inhale,
Exhale.

 

Panic ensues at the edge of the swing.
The tears well up and fall on blink
But lo it falls and love bursts at the seams,
I am a pendulum, dizzy.

 

Inhale,
Exhale.
Inhale,
Exhale.

 

I don’t know if it will ever end,
Forever locked, the swing, the bend.
Manic, depressed, broken, fixed,
All one, alone, unaltered, mixed.

 

Inhale.

 

Exhale.
