Vent into understanding

Solitary confinement,
volcano pressures
building up frustrations,
steamed inner seclusion.

Poison pen erupting
boiling within emotions,
first stroke of acidity
venting the pain.

Beware of the aftermath,
words flowing so freely
unrestricted by reservation
eating away to the core.

Yet to imprisoned oneself
to a life sentence
is committing suicide
within lifelong depression.

Vent in controlled bursts,
sending warning signals
respecting your individuality
to be heard in strength.

Vent into the earth
releasing its inside beauty
blossom into others, words
bleeding in understanding.

Thought: If you can feel the emotions of the words enter you, then the writer was blessed with the mixed gift of emotions, rising on some occasions and burying you with others.
