A Cautionary Tale

Bottled up, unreleased

The rage contained, now increased

A boxed-up soul, barred away

Emotions felt, but never stray


Hesitate, and bottle again

Feelings now to refrain

Hold a thought, leave unsaid

Another question laid to bed


Cage the monster, feed the beast

Wait until the passions release

The blast leaves in its wake

Another soul now to take



The way you presented this was very strong. I felt the energy behind each word almost like the heavy breath that comes with anger and pain.
