Regression to the Mean

In statistics we see
extreme scores head to the middle over time
the depression grows lighter
anxiety more bearable
poor sleep improves
slights are forgiven

What was once so powerful
mellows and folds into itself

But I grieve this, too
because I know that this
all of this great tingling love
it, too
will regress to the mean
