Under the Anger Where the Tears Hide

Post by there » Sat Jul 21, 2018 2:08 am

Those sorrow drops quiver on a layer of fear.
They're scared of the Anger flaming above them.
With good reason.
If it got to them, they'd mist to nothingness.

If they only knew
how scary they are to the Anger.

Anger.
Fear.
Tears.
Fear.
Anger.
Fear.
Tears.

Down through my soul they descend.
Will the pain find an end?

powerful emotion in your words, there.

I focused most on the line,
If they only knew
how scary they are to the Anger.
These lines made me think about how our emotions are all connected.

Thank you for sharing and kudos for expressing yourself in the space that you're in.

Dear there


May your pain find an end. May you find strength to accept fears tears and all feelings and then help them out by useful measures to be released

May all beautiful positive virtuous lovely aspects fill all the spaces left after easing out the yuck

thank you, ws and Fleur.

I was getting so lost in feeling destroyed. Still processing from accumulated crap from students into whom I pour my love, from whom I restrain my anger.

I'm self-aware enough to know that the anger sometimes shields me from the sadness I fear feeling.

Creativity is such a strength that we can access anytime.

Fleur, your entire post is poetic.
