Emotions This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Some things are meant for canvas
And other for music sheets
And some things are meant for words
And others for motions
We will always try
To express what we can't tell
What we can't understand
Because emotions are more than feelings
They are seas
They roil and roll
They sing and weep
They dance and they slink
They exist around us
And in the air
And they put off pulses
Signals, waves, auras
Some emotions
We can't explain
Because they're beyond us
We can't always understand
What we want to
And sometimes we ask
The wrong questions
And our emotions fold and leap
Dive and fly
Wave and fall
They tug at us
Pull us
Push us
Throw us
They exist around us
They dig and dig
And bury and rise
They call out
And arc
And –
