The Message in the Bottle

Poetry By: Carina
Young adult

Not sure where this came from... just trying to release things within me at the moment I suppose... That's the way to feel better isn't it?

The strong current of emotions
I cannot express openly
I shall wait until a better time
Yet how they torment me
The turbulent, torturing rush
Beating against my chest
The storm showing in my eyes
There is never any rest
Worry, hurt, sadness, anger
The war inside never ceases
Beating my soft, fragile heart
Into tiny, little pieces
Wanting to speak out
About everything I see
Yet words fall on deaf ears
Who would want to listen to me?
Being truely selfish I fear
Feeling very guilty indeed
That I really feel this way
Though I have all that I need
So I bottle up my emotions
Stuff them into the tiny glass
Yet there is no more room
Not much longer will it last
Now my ship, my heart, once sailing
Sinks into the deep sea waters
Friends not seen for miles around
Where, I ask, are the others?
The rushing, roaring, storming beat
Of the waves of emotion
The tumbling, crashing sea
I'm sick from the motion
Calling out for help
Down-spiral on full throttle
Please hear my message
My message in a bottle
