Of Emotions and Desires

Sometimes it’s better to choke than to breathe a fresh air of lies
Sometimes it’s better to drown than to swallow gulps of bitter realize
There are numerous ways to bleed and to make oneself cry
Just press the handle of control not to let the emotions fly

Sometimes it’s better to lunge at the bottomless pit,
Just to see how dark life has been in
those rooms of thoughts that have never been lit
I fold my papers of destiny and burn them on fire
Who knows what of
Emotions and what of desire…
