Locks me down,

Close the lid

Before it all comes spilling out.

Numb it all

It’s too much to handle

As it carries

Many others with it.

Emotions are a funny thing

Triggered by one thing

Only to drag up


Long since forgotten,

Things I thought

I dealt with.

Easier to

Stopper it up.

Wait for a safer day

Deal in manageable chunks.
