Not normally one to post poems in the discussion forums, but this one kind of tells " how" , and why I write. Not that I think I am in any way am worthy of advising anyone..........but sometimes I just feel like sharing.

Inside Out

A delicious secret will yield to a smile
And amazement makes you gasp out loud
Anger’s intensity necessitates screaming
At sleep, you can’t prohibit dreaming

As tiredness will compel a yawn
Darkness must give way to dawn
Hilarity, with abandon spills out a laugh
Curious as a cat, you can’t help but ask

An aching inside gives flow to tears
Pounding heart coincides with fear
Deep satisfaction sets free a sigh
When grieving you can’t help but cry

Fertile emotions can’t be suppressed
Poignant outpourings spilling into script
The pouring out, is the filling, of the lyricist
Cleansing by disclosure of consequence
