overcome by sadness
when there’s no real reason why
sometimes the tears start falling,
nothing happened to make you cry.
Somewhere deep down inside
as if a switch clicks off then on,
the emotional time passes away
sadness and tears, both are gone
maybe dark thoughts had taken hold
without you ever knowing why,
a distant memory,
you smile, you continue..
and yet you sigh.

‘tis an old one, but one which still pulls, for the feelings return and ebb like the tides, forever in the thrall of the Moon…
