Melancholy.

Oh, the build up of aggression over this single obsession of this thing called anger

The dangerous power that one emotion carries

yet is it just one or is it the root of many?

 

With anger, comes aggression

which has the power of silence

defiance and of all …depression

melancholy

 

 Melancholy leads to lack of emotion

numbness

soon enough loss of self being

And they all lead back to the same root

 

The silence is aggressive, obedient, yet nobody sees it

 

Isolation; silence is often misunderstood as hatred or  insubordination towards one single person

How selfish to just assume?

 

And it goes back to silence

 

The days seem longer, it only gets quieter, and then there’s a smile-

but just for a glimpse of a second

 and the silence is once again

It’s a daily circle and it never ends

 

How do you undo this mess ?

Guess again

That is a question in which I have to see until the end
