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.

brother that was very eloquent and really really moved me..past is haunting me as of last month like no other and my only solace was to seek words that describe how I feel and when I read yours I said to myself I need to give myself a break..but isn't that what makes a great poet my poet friend!

"Rage all through my head." I think everyone can pick something out of here that fits them.

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.
