Peaks and Valleys


Peaks and Valleys

ups and downs
smiles and frowns
the sadness i see is all around

one step forward
two steps back
Christmas cheer
don't look back

ink pen and blank page
time to get off the stage 
new chapter, close the book
the hopeful glance, the rage-filled look

flying free like the singing bird
screaming yelling but never heard
trees that grow, hearts that know
the beauty of a whispered word

you are me and we are free
kiss me hold me hate me love me
the aches and longings of the heart
the sweet, sharp pain that they call art

long dusty cobwebs
the sting that flows and ebbs
fog in the brain
lights shining in the rain

big smiles, sharp teeth
peaks and valleys
hope underneath
