Emotions

by Frank Sheehan

Emotions are fickle things,
determine your temperament,
mood, state of mind

They flow from
sympathetic to fiery
in a flash.

Hard to calculate
what makes them kick in,
are mind bending

Sometimes others reactions
can trigger sensations
that alter your sentiments

or who your companions are
can foster intense feelings
of happiness or despair

How do we make sense
of these rambunctious
delineations between rifles

of buckshot tempting
inner workings that mysteriously
make you succumb.
