One up. One down. False balance.
Polarity shifts position and placement
Trying to take the peak
You sought from your valley.
Thoughtless climb leaves you stranded.
Abandoned. Alone at the top
Staring down the chasm of disconnect
Only to falter and slip. To slide.
Chains of suspension. Detention. Bolted.
Holding the strap that binds you. Confines you.
Swinging in place to avoid true movement
Until it finally stops. Or you leap off.
Round and round you go,
Following the self you try to catch.
Always ahead. Always behind.
Never where you are.
