Escape In Words


Overwhelming

Overpowering
Overwhelming
Emotions sometimes
overtake the mind
submerge the heart

Unspoken
Unabated
Feelings threaten
to uproot you

I felt like this
when I met you
I had simmered
for far too long
A kettle on the boil
The steam
trapped within
For the spout
was sealed

The only escape
was in words
So I exploded
on the page
