“I don’t know what living a balanced life feels like

When I am sad

I don’t cry, I pour

When I am happy

I dont smile, I beam

When I am angry

I don’t yell, I burn

The good thing about

Feeling in extremes

Is when I love

I give them wings

But perhaps

That isn’t

Such a good thing

Cause they always

Tend to leave and

You should see me

When my heart is broken

I dont grieve

I shatter.”
