I ride the wave

It whipsaws me,
Up, down, and up again
Period unknown,
Amplitude undefined

Where will I be lead next?
My heart follows
Torn in two today,
Mended tomorrow
Only to be ripped again.

My life is on fast-forward
The drums pulse as I
Surge forward, 200 miles per hour
In the residential district
Of my childhood

I am Dow Jones
I ride the bull
The bear chases me
Up 150 points at market open
Down 60 at close

I am a captain,
A hapless captian
In a storm upon the sea
My ship’s taking on water
There’s nothing I can do.

She loves me
She loves me not

Come wave, wash over me
