30/30: day ten - once more with feeling

day ten prompt: Pick a one line song lyric to serve as an epigraph to your poem. Then, write the poem to accompany it. The poem need not be directly related to the song.

/oh, these little earthquakes, here we go again. oh, these little earthquakes, doesn't take much to rip us into pieces/
from tori amos' little earthquakes

once more with feeling

I do it to myself everytime.
I let myself believe
that I know what is best,
that my plan
is the best plan,
that what I want
I should get. 
and then
when it all comes crashing
when it doesn't crash at all,
there is a moment
when I remember
who is really in charge,
until I repeat the cycle
once more with feeling.
