Flooding Emotion, Careful Not to Drown

I need to stop

To take a deep breath

And look around

.

The edges

Of me are beginning to unravel

Coming undone

Like cloth

.

It is beginning

To enter

My heart

The edges

Are already black

.

Where there

Was once

A calm sky

In my mind

A storm rages

.

I need

To step back

And decide

If this

Is really what I want

To put my time

My energy

And my heart

Into

.

Do I want

To waste my life

Searching

And hating

Those who sinned

Against me

Letting my heart

Turn black

And my mind flood

.

I will eventually

Be swamped

The water hitting me

On that island

Where I lie crouched

Inside my mind

Over and over

Until

I drown in its depths

.

I will be left

With no life boat

If I don’t drain the anger

And become calm

A collected sea

Where nothing

Can touch me

And emotion

Doesn’t matter
