Poetry Monday: Feelings

Emotions are a curious thing
They come
They go
They fire you up
They break you down
They make you laugh
            Til your side hurts
They make you cry
            Til your throat hurts
They take you places
They can stop time
They can destroy your world
            Or remind you how great
            Things can be
But sometimes you wish
            You couldn’t feel a damn thing
