Got caught up,
In web of rumination,
Untangled myself,
Began to feel,
Was annoyed with myself,
Emotions extra-sensitive,
But made peace with myself,
And went to do washing-up,
But a housemate went to smoke,
At the very same time,
Standing at the kitchen door,
And I can’t think of a f***ing rhyme,
I just did,
He’s pretty autistic,
Harmless and bad socially,
So I let him be,
Try not to judge him so much,
Opening the door,
Is obviously not adequate,
And it just frayed my nerves,
That tiny bit too much;

I came back in my room, of course,
To reset my mind, again,
I just needed an expression,
Of anger and emotion;

Too much build-up,
Of energy and tension,
My body, bursting,
I just needed an explosion!

I’ve never written before,
With this kind of frustration,
β€”This is the kind,
Which caused meltdowns and supernovas,

But also, at other times,
When harnessed physically,
It’s the kind of energy,
That could power a country;

At least this is better,
Than releasing it in-person,
Be in no doubt,
It’s a verbal commotion 😁.

Such a commotion, in fact,
That it’s spawned a new category,
Which exploded onto the scene,
To contain all the obscene
F**k you (not you).

        Bees are so bee-utiful to me
        In that tree can’t you see?
        They’re everything I’ve hoped for
        They’re everything I need
        Bees are so bee-u-ti-ful
        to meeeeeeeeeeeeeπŸπŸ’¨

  1. I know how good it is to express how you are feeling, all your frustrations and penned -up feelings.
    Ever since my sister died, I have been writing in a journal and I write to her about how much I miss her and so much more and it helps me deal with her dying,
    Sometimes, I do put a few swear words in it.

    Good job on this poem, Robin.

    1. Hi Margie, thank you πŸ™‚πŸ’™. Yes it is a great feeling! The more physical the expression, the better, for me :D. I had to try and make the words come out of the page :\.

      Thanks for sharing that about your journal and Terri πŸ™‚. That seems like a great idea, and very sweet. And re-assuring to know about the swear words! πŸ˜€.

      1. I only swear in my journal but Terri would understand as she was not shy about using a swear word, now and then. Poor dear suffered so much and I could not blame her. ALS took everything from her (her mobility, her breathing, her speech and then the horrid monster of a disease took her life 😦

      2. 😨. That’s impossibly terrible, sad and tragic. Her bravery to keep going until the end was immense. πŸ’™πŸ’™

    1. Omg I can never find your comments when I try to reply to them, for some reason! I was trying to reply to your reply the other day, about your motivation to help random strangers on the internet (I’m sure it was you!). And somehow I failed to reply to this one too, despite replying to all of the ones on this! I’ve had a lot of comments and activity lately so I’m getting to the point where I can’t get everything in the notifications list, before they get pushed out, haha. But yesterday I came to each of my posts manually to check… :\. Anyway.

      Thank you!! This was very encouraging 😁. It’s so nice to feel free to be able to express those emotions! Thanks! I really appreciate your comments, despite how it may look now! πŸ˜†πŸ’™.

      1. I’m replying to this bastard now before it disappears into a black hole πŸ€£πŸ˜‚.

        Thank you so much! I certainly will 😁. I was doubting myself quite a lot today, but this has helped me feel better again.
