It's About Feelings.

It's About Feelings.

A Poem by mattavelli
"

It's about feelings.

"


Lately I've been thinking of the past,
how the comforts just don't last,
and how they mingle with the pain
and sort of swirl up like a hurricane
and rage all through my head.

All those memories reveal
all the cracks that didn't heal,
all those dreams that filled the wasted days,
day wasted dreaming.

Time is ridiculing me
for everything I've failed to see.
It's like a rattlesnake 
that whips around to bite the baby.

And, the venom's in my soul.
it's the glue that keeps me whole,
keeps me burning through the days.
I really wish I could explode.

~~~~~

I think today, I will explode.
I think today, I'll give my thoughts a rest 
and be more random,
a little crazy like I was before...
I'll breathe deep and ignore my conscience.

I read Your words, and I see that You are aware of Your own self, aware of the unhealed wounds that need to be healed, those emotional wounds, and this is the first key to the complete healing, it's so important to know and understand Your self, Your own feelings, and You are! perfection in the state of being and mind is Your goal, and as You keep the determination, You will find it, but it won't harm to take a break, and go crazy and wild :)

4th verse, 2nd from the bottom.
That is super. That venom can translate to passion and fuel. It's the juice that makes things grow. Nice one Mattavelli.

your welcome :)
I love this. I was feeling this way back about ten years when my life crashed bad. It's taken me all these years to drag myself thru the detritus of the meltdown & find a new direction. But I'll never forget how it felt to feel like exploding for a few years there. Your details are well done & original sounding -- "rattlesnake whips around to bite the baby" . . . "venom's in my soul" . . . so many intense descriptions of how it feels to have your life poisoned for awhile.

Thank you for reading.
oooooo ... warning Will Robinson! ;) its always risky being confessional, i have read ... but i think the venting has value enough .. the quasi rhyme and rhythm and form says a lot about the haphazard way our thoughts can ramble .. and there is an emotional turmoil broiling ..frustrations over attempts that fall short of intended goals .. i think your poem borders on mental health issues which always touch my own heart and soul .. i hope your deep breath gives some sense of cleansing not abandon of the conscience ;))
i appreciate this raw and honest poem ... bravely said says i!
