Up and Down

I'm going insane.

Happy as can be in a moment,

Only to come crashing down the next,

Into the darkness of my head.

From a pleasant thought,

To one leaving me distraught,

I sit alone in the dark.

Too many questions haunt my head,

Leaving me smiling,

Then empty instead.

So confused by myself,

I wonder what battle rages within my head.
