a flip of a switch

my silence
is impossibly
heavy
my absence
when fully retracted
is a gaping chasm
a darkness
that absorbs
all of the light
until it becomes
all encompassing
the same way
my passion
scorches the earth
in a supernova
of loving intent
and i exclaim
my adorations
on every single breeze

i oscillate
between
mania and depression
clinging tight
to my lodestones
to keep me true
flipping the switch
to try to navigate
this world alone
