Sentiment - by Bob Atkinson

(c)2014 Bob Atkinson

please help me decide for real
how an idea of merit makes me feel
a scheme packed deep within my head
of simple memories regenerated

sentiment begins to percolate
as if music playing on background images
flowing in toward, or flowing out of touch
deep within some dormant seed of doubt

how far could a feeling go
if left unchecked, on its own to grow
how long can we hold emotion in
if an idea lay scorned, branded invisible

sentiment resolves that guilty rage
a folded notion or well meant statement
forever trading remorse for vindication
as it serenely captures then emotes explanation
