I’ve always struggled with emotions
There are just too many
It can feel like drowning in an ocean
Why hide mine
I put it in the strongest safe
Sometimes I think it is dead
Blood doesn’t flow
Could it just be in my head?
That is why I write
Hoping my heart will show
Since it is trapped in my mind
I just want to raise the blinds
My poems get straight to the source
Words cut straight through flesh and bone
My heart is served up like the main course
Now do you dissect or devour?
