About the Poem
I was a pretty screwed up kid. I used to over-play and roll around in my feelings a lot - and I found poetry a way of expressing them. I can't honestly remember exactly what this poem was about. When I concentrate on a feeling I usually try and fix an image to it and this particular image was my tears becoming huge stones to throw in the ocean. I told you I was screwed up.

|My emotions pick up power and speed
Then break and smash and explode at my heart.
The great surges of my feelings impede
All that's consciously right. I start to cry.
Every tear sends waves of unseen feelings
Through the hidden surface of our lives.
They roll and fall until all love is gone,
All life is lived, and each feeling explored.
