I Feel Too Much

A gift or a curse?

My emotions are intense, overwhelming even.

Some would say that feeling so much is a blessing, a gift.

Although it is nice to experience the tenderness of life,

I never asked for something so complex.

Sadness is often unexpected,

consuming my body whole,

like a crashing wave on the shore.

With each slap against my body,

like a memory, paralyzes my limbs, and drowns me in the sea of grief.

Anger's warmth burns and builds from my toes to my head.

Upon reaching my eyes, everything that was once colorful

goes dark; I lose complete sight.

As anger takes control,

blindly, I burn every bridge I have built.

But there is one feeling I cannot shake;

it is a craving for fluttering butterflies

and the humming ball of light

that sits below my heart.

Passion and desire are sweet feelings,

reminding me how feeling so much

and so deep is not that bad.

It can be painful, but it can also be beautiful.
