Emotion's Gain

My anger is a defense
thrown up against the pain
that seeks to enter here, to be
within the heart and soul of me

It builds, it wanes
at times it moves the pain
beyond the points of pressure where it dwells
within the very cells
of flesh I am

Then pain released
becomes the tears that tease
a drop into a stream
at times an endless, aching dream

yet healing will be found
in currents of the sense and sound
for it is here
within the tears

we find the love
hidden in each moment of
emotion's gain
