I want to bottle this feeling up
And sell it to myself in the morning
Grossly overpriced with no family discount.
For the status symbol it implies.

I want to be selfish enough to buy it.
With the delusion that if it works
Everything will be better.
Buying it will make all the doubt,
Self-loathing, disgust and mistrust disappear......

I want to bottle this feeling up
And sell it to myself in the morning....
When I'm too stingy to cough up the cash.
This is a poem I wrote a long while ago, I still really like it, so I thought I'd post it.

As always, thoughts/interpretations/opinions are always welcome!

These are my favorite two lines. Clap

One minor thing I noticed: the eighth line has a space in the word "the."

Remember that bottling up feelings is not healthy at all. Because the bottle might explode someday.

Um.. Metaphorical bottling, like one does with beer, not bottling up emotions in the conventional sense. ^^;

Thank you for the favorite!
