Disproportionate ly
Spent-
Time
Expressing
Writing thoughts
On the negative,
More difficult emotions.
A time to process?
A method to heal?
Or just more words available?
The words take some of the depth away
because of what they are, just emotions turned to thought,
Losing depth
In translation.

The positive emotions, the
Love
Warmth
Joy
So much more difficult
To put into words.
And not as rewarding,
Often a disappointment
Because the words,
The thoughts,
Never convey the depth of

The emotions.

I prefer to move with the emotion,
Sit with the emotion,
Let tears roll down my cheeks

With the Love I feel
I sit with the warmth
With the burn
On the inside.

For Love
Words alone will never do.
