Bottles

February 1, 2014
I can’t bottle up anymore.
The distills are spilling over.
All over me, through my phone, over my text messages, through my eyes and down my face.
I can’t hold anymore.
The shelves are overstocked
If I can sell these bottles as art then I can store more later.
Distill my pain into poetry
And turn my shame into pride.

That's some solid advice. I've never been one for hiding my feelings. I just let it all out! "Let it go! Let it go! Can't hold it back anymore!" (Frozen reference) Nice job!
