Emotions
My emotions
I poured them in slowly, carefully
letting go of prior notions
of getting third degree burns
I was laid back at first,
set to a slow simmer
taking the experience as it came
Before I realized it, there was a glimmer
of hope, perhaps wishful thinking...
maybe even a gift, heaven sent
To my surprise, the troubled waters
began to change their element.
The vapors started to rise, as my
demeanor shifted from calm to enraptured.
Temperature, rising
churning emotions, captured
Egg shell sensitivities
close to over flowing
for I have reached the boiling point
in my heart, in my mind, knowing
full well that I have to get my soul
under control....
Do I turn the heat down
so the waters can be still,
or do I let the feelings evaporate?
Either way, I need to chill
And I will
so that I can get beyond
the boiling point.

sometime once the water get hot things boil and burn
but turn the heat down will cool off if it sit long enough
