By Me

My swings are getting worse.

I remember being happy today.
The worries vanished,
The world seemed bright
And full of life,
And I held peace.

Now, I lay here,
Awake, thinking, wondering,
And ever so worried
About myself,
About the world,
About inevitability.

I remember being alone before,
In that peaceful world,
Not just without people,
But knowing
People weren’t really possible.

I imagine tomorrow
Will be the same.
Some combination of feelings,
Some semblance of thought,
All created and experienced
By me,
By only me.
