Flood.
A flood of feelings
Rushing in and out,
Waves swallowing me under, into a tired state,
Carrying me to an energetic ride,
Abandoning me in a taste of happiness.

 

Those are my emotions,
Let free.
Roaming the world,
Outside.

Far far away,
On an island
Only some people can reach

Is a chest,
A treasure chest,
Capsuled,
Locked away from outside.

Inside,
Are the things are tighten my
Heart,

Make me
Glimpse,

Have me
Think,

Do me
Harm.

There is a chest,
A treasure chest,
Capsuled,
Locked away from the outside,

That hold my true emotions.
Curiousness
Bitterness
Sensitiveness


The author's comments:

I wrote this poem while pondering about how people see me as a person. I noticed that I am somewhat different from the image and person I present/put out to the public, and that I should introduce I different side of me that people don’t know.
