I'm sitting in the scissors my own emotional drama An all-night staging on the podium Poor audience trauma, loss and wordless pain My release of emotional tension Costumes, makeup, sound and special effects The spectators will experience a dramatic tragedy There is a leak in the water hose, salty tears Behind the mask, imbalance in black bile When emotions are linked to the heart and not the head Occasionally, sea worms come to the surface But, I ensures that the feet have a secure anchorage Dare to spin the wave Freud would rejoice, I'm sure The definition of learning is in fact a relatively lasting change 07/12/2020 Sun :) - A-L Andresen :) Copyright © All Rights Reserved Catharsis Poetry Poetry Contest Sponsored by: Silent One 2nd place in the contest

So sad and quite beautiful. Extraordinary verse.. whispering sadness beneath it's words, a vision of grief that I long to comfort and know only God can. I love you dear friend. God bless you

There’s times we have to act a part to hide a broken heart, and wear a mask so no one can see the tears that flow so easily. A very good write Anne-Lise, best wishes for the contest. Belle

When emotions are linked to the heart-- a great line among many, Anne-Lise --no better place that the podium for release of latent feelings.
