bouncing back and forth

like an out of control volleyball

emotions escalate up newest heights

then... dramatically they fall

crashing to the ground

no regard for inflicted pain

tender feelings snap and break

it happens again and again

relentless for peace among us

regardless of paying a price

I persevere for commonality

but others just can't play nice

so, hide and cry and feel forgotten

alone as if the world did end

emptiness fraught with cold and dank

stubbornness forbids we bend

not giving in to one another

to cease the anger that smites

pouting in a pool of darkness

at love and hate that mercilessly bites
