Feelings, feelings, swirling within me
Pieces of my soul in a hundred different forms
Love, big chunks wrapped and sent along
With each gaze, each act, in your direction
Each time you reject it, these bits of my soul
Are scattered aimlessly, floating, like a dandelion in the wind.
Joy, fine powder of my soul
Sprinkled in all my words and deeds
So fine they are, you can inhale them
Sending tinkling warmth along your veins.
Sometimes, my soul, shattered, sends
Shards sharp and stinging
Flying all over, often without aim
Hurting all around, with my angry bitter words.
Often in times of loss and sadness
My soul is squeezed with an invisible hand
Droplets of pain in the form of tears
Escape from mine eyes
Despite my pleas not to flow.
Melancholy, when my soul
Becomes a viscous liquid
Coursing through my body,
Making each movement sluggish
Too thick an emotion
To flow out of my eyes
A marshy swamp within me, sucking whole
The beauty, the fragrance, the essence of life.
Perhaps the ugliest form is jealousy
When my soul is split into streaks
Each one like an arrow flies out
Sometimes seen, sometimes hidden
Piercing my target, piercing his soul.
Along come loneliness and despair,
Weighing a ton, my soul, crushing and shrinking
In vain, I search for a shoulder to lean on
Another soul, a mate whose hand I long to hold.
The lightest feeling comes as bliss
When my soul gets transformed slowly
Incorporating love, joy and passion
A heady mixture, making me tremble
In your presence it expands and reaches out
To merge as one, with your soul.
