Valerian Pills, Make Stressfull Situations Much Easier!

You're weeping, not helping
Why do you want to be the first one to get to the bottom, everytime
I'm shaking, you're aching
It seems you always want eyes and ears
You're keeping me prisoned
though I still love it now and than
afraid to become an owl, howling the night
the coward I am, I just can't make my choice

It's heart over head, or head over heart
I always battled these, decisions are too hard

I was warned, but I hardly cared
Now I'm in such strain
It´s driving me insane
So confused, a dilemma
Don't want to do this anymore
Another pill, would just be fine!

Reset me, again
From the start, refill me
and undo our mistakes
Take over and lead me
Don´t let me use the winds as a compass again (they are unreliable!)
Don´t let me use the winds as a compass again (they are unreliable!)
Don´t let me use the winds as a compass again (they are unreliable!)
Don´t let me use the winds as a compass again (but you are!)

    Valerian does calm things down. The header attracted me, then I saw the turmoil within! Great job!

    I do like this poem very much! A great read. Smothering our emotions with pills won't kill them off, as we find out eventually...love will not be smothered, just subdued for a while.

    I like the sound of your last stanza! It shows strength of character, because you know what you are made of...ie love, which can reset every tribulation and trial we have ever endured. This fact is why we don't need a compass to find our way...we feel our way perfectly well.

    Love the effect of those two last lines on the whole piece. I am sure the wind knows what way to take you. We have to go with the flow because every day is different from the last and being flexible, is safer imo.

    Smiling at you

    talking too much!

    Tai
