Emotions

They will come
Every day
I expect them but they are still
Unexpected
They do not come in short bursts
They come in a huge overwhelming blast
No way out of my body
Sometimes I cry but
They don't come out in my tears
Automatically I bleed but
They don't come out in my blood
I panic
There are no distractions big enough to offer relief
I talk
Sometimes they ease
If I am alone
They intensify
No getting away from
