Harmlessly

Spending the feelings harmlessly
Writing it out, then only to burn
Having spent the feelings harmlessly
Writing it out made me learn.

Never speak out angry and hurt
Calm down and disarm
Spend the feelings harmlessly
Write it out without causing alarm

  1. Spend the hurt and regrets
    Spew out all the bitterness
    Puke out all that was hard to digest
    Empty out the emptiness.

    Yes , but do it just for yourself
    So like acid it doesn’t harm
    Spend the feelings harmlessly
    Write it out without causing alarm.

    • I’m finding that reading the other peoples poetry is hard for me now and this is supposed to be a shared event so for now I have to sit out until I have the ability to read more patiently… Hope you understand…
