Eclipse of Retrograde Emotions

What sorcery these planets cast
E’en before reverse adjusts the mast
They stir and churn the ocean
Of tempest and turbulent emotion
The shine of sun or moon disturbed
Waters of the body and mind perturbed
Their energy easily seeps and permeates
Flesh and bone it disrupts and agitates
With vibrations in tone off key
No perpetrator visible to see
Tsunami of crashing waves erupt
Sadness like a thunder cloud abrupt
Anxious nerve endings feel the internal weather
Unconscious that all these things together
Quake the incomprehensible storm inside
Until realization and information collide
And breath is pulled way down deep
Fighting this familiar urge to weep
Awaiting the downsize of these effects
Possibly finding refuge below decks
Trying to anchor to a semblance of hope
Reduce the narrow scale of myope
And see the blessings these can offer
Of crystal springs sanguinity be a quaffer
