The feelings of a season

Some, truly within reason
Others are just prognostications
Built upon a certain equation

Between a perceived elation
And desire to be in the station
... That stop between good-will
And anxiety - still ....

For it most certainly is the down-slide ...
(The part which makes you want to run and hide)
And that part of the feeling is just camouflaged
Behind the joy you desire to show the world at large

- Tristram
