A feeling is

A feeling is

is
a red balloon
on a white string
in the hands of a child
whose attention may slip
carelessly
allowing the string
to slide through greasy fingers,
as the bubble drifts
without a care,
the rubber expanding
as pressure drops,
water condensing
on its surface,
the temperature falling
and the beads of water
crystalize into gems,
ice shards, and
needles,
until the diamond studded
ruby orb
pops,
and the string and torn rubber
come crashing down
