The Ocean of Emotion




in a sea of emotions

the currents of anger pulls me back

while melancholy drags me





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


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
