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

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 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.

As they are made
Reveling in the present

Thank you so much. I believe all of need to let go from time to time.
Its good to detach sometimes.

"Enjoying the moments
As they are made
Reveling in the present"

I think we just need to let go sometimes and live in the present.
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!

That is true
The past is the past
He must not devour the present or the future
