Power of Words

There’s power in these words

adjectives, nouns and verbs

collaborating into similes

used to get these feelings


But the similes are just metaphors

to put into motion

these emotions

like sound waves

traveling through eardrums


fill the bowl

only to overflow and beat on my soul

hence the release 

is sweet

able to breathe

to think

no longer consumed

to mazed rooms

encircling themselves

stacked atop 

like layers of shelves

gaining weight

as my soul

once swelled

now left alone

only for a moment

for release is in the dealing

not the cure of it
