All The Shining People - Poem by Sarah Sisson

A feeling is a savage beast
that ruins the party, spoils the feast

and dances high but brings you down
to make you seem unwanted. Clown

you are to those you try to fix.
Leave them alone maybe you'll mix

a few martinis. Down they go
and you can then have all the woe

of those you care for, those that may
dilute your heart; lead it astray,

and to the drummer, beat and all
a nothingness will break the fall
