Roller Coaster

Roller Coaster

I kept quiet for so long
checking my tongue
and making silent screams
Secretly hoarding thoughts
into my own private stash
Fatigued by the roller coaster
of emotions that I navigate
each day by just being
the other half of you
Some are better than others
but mostly I am dragged behind
hanging on for dear life
My reserve worn thin
and my emotions
tangled in knots
The only escape is imagining
that cathartic moment
when I finally release

    I know what feeling like you’re on an emotional roller coaster is like. It takes its toll.
