There is a joy beyond the smile
A happiness beyond the cheer
A peace beyond the silence
A pleasure beyond the moan
Unexplained, yet understood
Elusive, yet ever present.
It swells from a gulf of deep-seated denial
Erupts from a place deeper than your core
Bursts through a barrier of suppressed sentiment
It consumes you.
Wholly, Completely, Fully.
Your fingers tremble as it surges through you
Your thoughts lose all sense of composure
Your head swims in an ocean of delirium
Your lips part way for the soundless cry of anguish
You are caught;
caught in a whirlwind of emotion.
