Pain builds to a point when it explodes.
Emotions override our thoughts,
And our actions seem to matter not.
One may not even mean to hurt another.
Emotions may just cause dramatic twists;
And therefore, can one be held accountable for this?
One’s perceptions are distorted by emotions.
In desperation, one expresses his feelings,
And all the while, the heart breaks as one tries to reason.
Even good intentions can prove to be a downfall.
Wanting to help others can bring you too close.
Those unwilling to help themselves are like a drug overdose.
We become a ball of explosive emotions
Failure to control them ultimately destroys us
And our ability to recognize what Love is.
