    Cactus

    Shunning emotions
    Laughter and late night whimpers 
    Won't push over the thunderous clouds
    Growing out of you.
    Keeping a stiff upper lip,
    Masked
    Dancing under the moonlight
    Won't capsize the mildewy feeling so fast.

    Embrace it all,
    Each one of the thorns your cactus ralphed.

    Let the poison ooze out
    Until you are no more whithering in pain,
    Brace your insanity
    Love yourself.
