Vicious Cycles

Haven’t you ever noticed
That there’s always a vicious cycle?
In case you didn’t know this
It’s hiding somewhere in your life

It takes up all your energy
It keeps going and it never stops
It’s the same that happened yesterday
Yet you still don’t know what comes next

It keeps you on the ends of your toes
The balls of your feet
As never-ending as the wind blows
It’s the one thing you just can’t beat

It charges at you at the wrong time
It rains right on your parade
It makes you believe nickels are worth more than dimes
And you can’t decipher its charades

There’s always a vicious cycle
You may not know it exists
But it’s lurking in your mind at night
Plotting when it’s going to hit

I wish I could go back to when I was cranking out some great poems...
