How to feel

When life feels surreal

Should I laugh or should I cry

A part of me forgets why

It hurts inside

When feelings collide

Hearts breaking

Chest aching

Trying to distract the mind

But the feelings continue to combine

Hurting another while hurting yourself

Trying to put the book of feelings on a shelf

The chill of winter around my soul

The spring showers are my goal

Getting over pain through time

Should the torture of emotion be a crime?

Love, heartbreak, life

Cutting up the pieces of my heart with a knife

For now I will let the storm consume me

For I know that things are how it should be
