A Poem by D S Rollins

I'm a victim of my own emotions...


Why do you not care


to even check if I'm ok?



Why do you not care?



Because of you, I'm in the foetal position


analysing every word you said


Was this your mission?

I wish I could tell you how I really feel

But I'm a coward

I can't handle the rejection

What's the deal?

I feel heaviness on my chest

I need to release

Why can't I just forget about you?

This is a mess.

Nothing can fill this void

I need something

I need you.

To get through.

But you don't want me

What else can I say?

All the stuff bubbling in my chest

Will have to be left at bay.

Ok! I think I'm fine today...

And then I relapse.

All of these emotions may cause

me to collapse.

And yet, there you are unaware of what's happening

And here I am torturing myself because

of one word you said to me.

D S Rollins
Emotions can make you do some stupid things! My emotions have caused me to act irrationally and stupidly... just put it to words..

Bearing in mind of course, that the subject, nine times out of ten is scarcely worth the investment of angst and wordy ruminations. Emotions make the best poetry, for in them we see the core of one another.

Thanks for the words---
