JINGLE POETRY

I can't just turn my feelings on and off
like some sort of light switch.
It is harder to let go
than I thought.
What kinds of things make me moody?
Rain and grey skies,
wanting to walk to a coffee shop
but none exist,
seeing long-ago signs of what I used to be; what
YOU used to be.
Emotions are hard to sort through.
I used to think I had a better handle on them
BUT...
they seem to be boiling up inside of me
the older I get, the more hormones I have
(or don't have).
The realization that love disappears
sometimes.
Some time
is all that I need right now.
Some bright and sunny skies
wouldn't hurt either.
And a single-shot decaf, non-fat, two-pump mocha!
Yes, I said DECAF!
