Message in a Bottle

Bottled up emotions
Wanting to be heard
It takes a lot of strength
To keep things under control
How much longer will this last?
Before the jar explodes?
It might be a day
It might be a week
There must be a way to vent
The words pour out
Line after line the paper is filled
Word after word the bottle is emptied
Just in time, all strength is gone
Nothing left to hold on to but this paper
They got their wish
They're finally heard 
Another jar
Another paper
