What I Feel

March 27, 2011
This power, it surges through me.
I feel ready to implode.
My emotions are too confusing.
Nobody will ever understand.

This power, it grows and develops.
But there is another,
More distinct feeling.
A feeling of deep loathing.

This feeling, it controls me.
There is no escaping it.
I try to act normal,
Yet it is always inside, lurking.

This feeling, it always returns.
Soon, it will consume its host.
There is no stopping it.
It is like a parasite.

But it is not invincible.
There are ways I keep it at bay.
My friends help do that.
Even if they don't realize.

There are just a few more.
When I am typing, or painting.
They are both the canvas onto which expression is poured onto.
This is how I feel, always and forevermore.

Very well done. Emotions do control you if you allow them to do so. Good job in demonstrating it.

I guess emotional articles like that will. The guidance counselor thought that I was having problems, and I told her I was fine. My poems just seem to make people think I have problems, including my elementary school guidance counselor.

All I can say is that it's a shame. Poetry is supposed to express and show feelings. There was nothing wrong with that poem. If you ask me, it's the adults who need counseling.  <><
