Conflicting Emotions

Hope you enjoy this. Language can be really weird sometimes.

Conflicting Emotions

Laugh with sorrow
Strut with fear
Blush in arrogance
Comfort severe

Snarl with love
And kiss with hate
Hug with reluctance
And despair with faith

All so unthinkable
To soothe with distress
So why do people cry
With happiness?


  1. This is stunning Octa. Truly beautiful.
    It never ceases to amaze me how splendidly you can capture through, imagery and emotion into words that translates exactly what you feel. It is, to be honest, quite amazing and thoroughly humbling.
    Congratulations, Octa, on yet again another spectacular piece of mastery!

  2. I love this poem with more than words can say. It's perfect.
