Emotion's Flow...A NiaG Poem

Updated on November 26, 2011

High, low, whirling round

Up again, even higher, then back down

Tracing the skies feeling the flow

Do you feel it now, now do you know

The weightlessness becomes a dream

Reality isn't at all what it seems

The euphoria you feel could end at any time

Cherish this moment and follow this wind

Hurry it's changing now

Feeling not at all like it began

Time's running out, your wavering to the ground

You can hear the whirling stop, oh where is the sound

Things are at a still, everything's quieted down

How will you get up again, now feeling the cold ground

Hush, listen, the air's beginning to change

Could it be that whirling wind has found you again

Reach up, grab on and don't let go

You're flying high again, in ectasy, feeling the flow

Meaning Behind the Poem: This poem, in my opinion, expresses how feelings are much like how a feather sometimes flows when a breeze catches it. If you notice the flow of a feather when the wind catches it, it flows upward and flies high until the wind dies down and then it falls. Flying high again when the next wind comes. In this poem the different stages one feels as they go through the cycle of falling in love is represented. One moment they are up and filling alive. Feeling as though they are soaring above every cloud in the sky. But love can not remain on a constant high and in the blink of an eye one can be as low as the ground. Either the two in the relationship have gotten into an argument, causing that feeling of euphoria to wind down or they have run into hard times that puts stress on the relationship. And then when the two come together and find their happiness again love takes off on another high again.

Or it symbolizes the way one feels when they fall in and out of love very easily. Some people have the tendency to have an open heart when it comes to love. They may find someone for the moment that makes their heart go pitter patter. But they may also find themselves falling out of love as easily as it came on. The heart becomes destroyed and filled with despair. And once they are over the first, they allow themselves to be swept up by the feelings of love again with another. The feeling of love is just as strong as it was before.

It also doesn't have to relate to the feelings of love. It could just be the feeling one gets when they set out to meet a goal. Running into highs and lows along the way are apart of obtaining any goal. And feelings can go from way up high to way down low. And once a person achieves getting over another hurdle during the process of reaching their goals, they are flying high through the skies again. They will find themselves constantly chasing those feelings, getting one step closer to their goals and dreams. As with any poem, it's interpretation can and will vary from person to person.

      I loved every word. I saw the feather and read the words and just knew that you were comparing the human emotion because I feel those emotions all the time. I guess I recognize myself in your words. Beautiful poem!

      I feel that way sometimes too. But that's the thing with poetry. They're kind of person specific. Either you get it or you don't.

      I'm on here at the crack of dawn too. Hubpages is so addicting. Ha!
