Emotional Diet

Emotional Diet

A Poem by Poetic Beauty

Closing out emotions
The deeper ones
That dwell within

Blocking out the past
Adding a brick
To the crumbling wall

Leaving the love
Hidden beneath
A swirling lake

Trapping the pain
Silently behind
A cage of iron

Letting go for now
Of lost feelings
Cloaking them with a veil

Enjoying the moments
As they are made
Reveling in the present

Smiling for today
For I am
On emotional diet

As so often with your writing you use words with economy and good effect - and the short lines and triplets add to the impact. Some striking images - 'crumbling wall', 'swirling lake', 'cage of iron', 'cloaking them with a veil' add colour and texture to the sense of emotional 'diet' - if not starvation!

I guess we could all do with going on this sort of diet as many of us (poets and writers in particular) gorge on emotion until bloated and distended and nauseous. A crisp piece indeed PB.
PS do you not send our RRs? I rarely see your posts otherwise.

I'm now inspired to go on the same diet. This flows at a way that the reader can relate without mistaking its purpose. "adding a brick to the crumbling wall" how powerful of a statement in so few words.

That is one of my favorite lines in this poem. I'm glad you liked it and felt inspired by the poem
This is very beautiful, PB, and the last verse made me smile, too. Very nicely done.

The last line is a little humor in something serious
Yes indeed, there comes a point when one must move on and not let past hurt continue to way heavy on our mind!

Pertinently and positively penned, 'emotional diet' superb metaphor!

I think we need to let past emotions go sometimes.

I think we all need an emotional diet from time to time
Swallowing our feelings instead of letting them out can cause our burdens to become overweight.

It can but reliving the past isn't good either
