Boiling

Emotions like a pot of of rice

boiling on the stove.

The heat builds,

the lid rattles,

’till the steam

bursts at the surface,

and everything spills

out making a giant mess

all over the stove.

  1. Haha I had a song once and one of the verses was, “Or is this whole thing gonna blow up in my face/cuz I left a pot of secrets on the stove/the heat is high, the lid is tight/it’s gonna be one hot mess when it explodes” and this reminds me of that!! 🙂 Love it, I can relate! 🙂
