Holding the emotions like a pool of water.

Are we just a container
holding the emotions
like a pool of water
sensitive to drills
aging in rust
several holes
and we will leak?

I’ve applied the tape
over the years
the stickiness
has proven to be mediocre
letting loose
the emotions burst
a little happy
dissolves within the murky water.

The anger hiding in
the water it turned
a murky red
I can’t feel it differently
the levels of chlorine
can’t filter
can’t clean it
the toxicity is often high within me
and I try
bringing the happiness in
filling the water it leaks out
but when you’re mostly angry
it’s difficult to cleanse the water
without bursting first.

Thanks for reading.
