A bottled up emotion

Is a virus in the lysogenic cycle. 

Beware of this intruder, or foreign entity,

That has entered your body

For the sole purpose of inflicting pain. 

Relentlessly, the emotion will travel

Through your blood stream

And manipulate itself into millions of copies,

Stored within the confines of your blood cells.

The cycle, far worse than the opposing one,

The lytic version,

Maintains two distinct phases.

A dormant phase

Where emotion is concealed

And no symptoms and side effects are apparent.

The dormancy isn’t real sleep

As the virus works its way around your body,

From one cell to another. 

Pain isn’t outwardly felt

And you believe yourself

To be a healthy, human specimen.

Sleep and differentiation continue only for so long,

Until a random moment when the emotion “awakes”

And activates all the dormant cells,

Initiating an auto-immune war between your own cells

And your worldly body. 

Eruption: the emotion comes from seemingly nowhere

And eats at you, killing your will for life. 

Heed my warning –

When emotions are troubling you,

Turn on the switch for a lytic emotion,

One that attacks right away.

You will be overwhelmed but only for a mere instant.

The virus will soon leave;

There will be no storage,

No growth of anger and pain,

No attack that isn’t planned,

And no need for a tactic at survival.

From now on, allow yourself no bottled up emotions.
