My loudest feelings

My Loudest Feelings It pricks my pores Makes me red like glowing charcoal. My tear glands could not stop reminding me of its nature. That feeling I thought as much Love hit my heart Its prints left stitches. I could not bear it Each time my heart beat of jealousy. The only cold I felt Where the breeze of my breath. Like an African woman pounding vegetable in the middle of the night. So were the lobes of my brain jamming each other. I never wonna feel as such again. When my feelings are smashed. My care snubbed My love overlooked No, not again! Let my heart rest. When my thoughts took me to space. When anger battled with my soul. When addiction became part of me. No, not again! Let my mind rest.
