*emotional Girl - Poem by Sarah Sisson

I am an emotion.
I surface each night
and feel the pain of yesterday.
I writhe. It is a power that
I give life. It does not soothe
me. Cast an iron shelf on
my shoulder to carry dirt,
soot from a day of anguish
that I wish to combine
with self disgust. I am
proud of my pain. I wear it
like a badge that is forged
from spilled blood. Broken
bones and scars.

    A poetic out burst of the pent up whole,
    But the body's business betrays the goal.

    and the goal is bliss.
