Clouds and emotions

Negative emotions 

Grey clouds on a rainy day 

One is angry and above the rooftops , Shouting words of frustration inside of herself 

But no need to shout to the rooftops with anger 

She is already that and beyond   


Another cloud is jealous of the white clouds that appear in the sun  Those that simply feel peace  And doves of freedom 

She sees rain falling from the angry cloud in the sky and sighs  Least she’s releasing the anger into the earth at last 

But this jealous cloud can’t let go of the feelings within her space she can’t let go 

She’s waiting and waiting till the time she can let fall the jealousy within her     


The angry cloud is becoming that little bit lighter 

And she can see the grey ache of the anger fading as the rain falls and falls 

And she sits and becomes angry of not being allowed the release of the now happier cloud  Who’s found a way to release abs let go  To unburden her heavy mind   


The angry cloud starts to fall a little lower 

She seems to be nearer the rooftops Niw , As if now a feather is starting to be felt within 

The grey aching anger has faded  The rain has been released  No longer shouting but starting to smile   


The jealous angry cloud can see feathers falling below her  When once there lived a tired cloud 

And she sighs even more  Waiting and sighing 

Why is she feathers and I am a rock so she thinks to herself 

So jealous even more so now that she sees the lightness she so craves  Now this  cloud starts to cry   

Two clouds 

Different feelings 

One negative like a rock 

The other positive , this time shouting to the rooftops with joy   


Feeling sad and all you want are feathers within a true smile of joy 


The jealous angry cloud cries because the burden has become too much

Rain falls to the rooftops now thanking the feathery cloud for allowing her to feel more than jealousy and anger 

Now she feels moved to tears  Leaving the jealousy and anger behind 

Falling to the rooftops to feel at peace with her lighthearted friend 


  Now they are both smiling to the rooftops  Sitting on the roof as peaceful unburdened doves

    Wow my first read in a while and although it took on a massive emotional trip the ending was just what I needed!

    Keep up the write
    Don't lose that light!

      Thankyou Dan ๐Ÿ™‚ Iโ€™m glad the ending made it lighter and Iโ€™m glad you liked the read .

      Yesterday I was struggling with quite a few negative feelings which simply felt a bit heavy and tiring .
      Itโ€™s difficult when we feel certain feelings because they just feel heavy and tiring ..,

      I guess we all want to feel peaceful .... I do sometimes , just not always

      • yellowrose

        I think there are parts of me that sometimes feel quite angry and hurt by life

        this is so full, full, full of emotions, different emotions jealousy is a hard one to own, especially if one doesn't want to actually feel that way, this poem is about truth that lies within, i feel every bit of this one Rose, and well done for writing about it. x

        • yellowrose

          Thanks teddy ๐Ÿ™‚ difficult feels yesterday although I think there was a bit of peace at times . I can feel anger within myself , also jealousy ... sometimes we canโ€™t help these feelings within ourselves ... I was struggling a little bit with my dissociation yesterday too and just probably feeling too involved in how I was feeling

          Appreciate your kind words ...๐Ÿ™‚

          Good write Rose.
          If only it was - Oh, all ya gotta worry about with heavy or negative feelings, is my singing! lol.
          I did a short course on emotions. Erm, can't tell ya a lot about it, mainly cos I didn't understand some of it.. It was quite involved, and with scholarly language too!
