Emotional Fountains

Emotions are like water
shooting up from a fountain
and our bodies are the vessels
that capture it.

Cups and bowls,
whole and broken
which collect or spill out
emotions.

The bitter waters of fear are acid like
they eats away at glazes and metal
until it cracks
and water leaks out.

The sweet waters of joy are abundance,
which over flow
spilling into
other vessels.

Be careful from which well
I pull my water from.
For it affects not just me,
but all those around me.

I can tell which water
others pull for their own fountains
for I either feel uplifted or drained
from being in their presence.

Emotions are like water
shooting up from a fountain
and our bodies are the vessels
that capture it.
