The Ocean of Emotion

Location

 

Drowning

in a sea of emotions

the currents of anger pulls me back

while melancholy drags me

d

In the ocean of the mind 

there is no escape or relief

when everything you could ever feel

makes you feel insane.

I am a slave to the emotion

that changes with the tide

until I am so overwhelmed

and it’s hard to breathe. . .

 

That is when I start to see

a life preserve thrown

a rope of words that lift me up

out of the waters of confusion

that consumed so many souls.

 

But not mine.

 

I cling to the words that guide me and I am

free.

I am above it all with such perfect clarity

control and satisfaction

no longer a victim

the words giving me a crown

out of the chains I broke

giving me the power to rule over my kingdom

with a view of the ocean

below.
