We laminate our lamentations
Sealing sorrows
Dwindling diffidently
Tucked and taped away
Awaiting another day
Until the salty seas of tears
Turn taxingly to waterfalls
And begin to drown us
Swirling whirling hurling waters
Roaring radiantly
In violently vicious streams
Of hissed howls and hollers
Warily walloping us for our
Omnipresent oppression of their existence
Until in the midst of sullen spiteful swarms
Of embezzled emotions
We learn to swim

I love the flow, the alliteration, the rhyme, the fact that it's free verse. Great!
