Desires and thoughts shift with changing states of mind
conditions in respect to circumstance, sleep dreams, awakened clarity
confusion in data overload, static din, collapse of structural integrity
as urgent demands force desperate irrational acts
improbable options lead to breakdown, as areas of sensibility
collide with zones of risk, plateaus of guilt and rationality
testing our core of beliefs, as character flaws, cracks
are revealed in constant battering and volatility of body chemistry
classic human syndrome in our pattern of symptoms
phases of mellow moods tempered, with limits of involvement.
