Emotions Untold

How do you explain these emotions untold?
Wanting that one person to have and to hold.
These feelings within that i want to release.
Overcoming my body like an infectious disease.
Spreading through with every beat  of my heart.
I can't stand for us to be this far apart.
These feelings growing stronger as the time passes by.
I have to get my mind off of you before I break down and cry.
It's all building up like pressure inside a can.
If I break down how can i even call myself a man?
Trapped inside this cell like a beast inside a cage.
Only the penitentiary can turn love in to rage.
I'm trying to hold back and keep this heart from growing cold.
Then again how do you explain emotions untold??
