The Scale of Emotion


A world of extremes:

Charged with energy or dead to the world

Intense extrovert or hostile introvert

Pinnacle of joy or pits of despair

Passion of love or yawns of apathy

Sharp intelligence or tenacious incomprehension


An impossible scale to balance

A human tossed by the whims of emotion

Who controls my unruly feelings?

I do. I hope.
