Cascading Emotion




Deep emotion

Stored hidden in my cells

I didn’t even know you were there

Until

Today

When, BANG!

I killed it.

No discerning at all


And murdered that dark cockroach

climbing my wall

So what?

A cockroach, I may hear you say

It’s lesser and insignificant

Than all I am today

But oh

On the other we take it all out

I know that we do

When our emotion is suppressed

It happens to

Me too.

And ANGRY I was

At a completely different thing

To which this innocent creature

My anger I did bring

So I reflected on ‘my stuff’

And laid myself bare

To heal my own painful memories

And stop hurting

And stop blaming

Out there
