my emotions feel like a
spool of thread
wound tight, yet not too so,
more just right.

How, you ask, could I know?

Years spent
living in a body
with emotions bound
so tight,
I lived on the verge
of extinction
from the very bliss of
every little feeling distinction.

And now?

Just right,
is about the state
of things today. And,
I’m always curious
about what the next chapter

will lay

at my feet.

As I continue
to learn
more about my (our)
very existence
on a planet
so full of wonder
I often forget

what I’m dealing
