    I am an emotional addict.
    I am most alive and my words most evoking when my emotions are on edge,
    when my heart is breaking or I am in the losing proposition.

    Feelings of emotional turmoil
    bring me and all of my senses to a boil.
    When my emotions set forth, I am moved to accomplish more.
    How can I explain this feeling that is wrapped in deep sensibility,
    keeping my mind a jumble, yet, clear as a looking glass
    reflecting the water of clarity.

    It is an emotional wrench that twists the best part of me
    into something that is at once unique and highly efficacious.
    I am at my best under this type of passion.
    There is no cure and I seek none. It is the sweet pain I feel
    that lets me know I am alive;

    otherwise, I feel things in a substantially smaller manner.
    I am not moved as much by logic and reason
    as I am by pure emotive force during these tempests of emotion.
    I need that gut-wrenching feeling that says to me “ you are alive.”
    Epicurean rapture moves me past the prosaic pensiveness of peacefulness
    and into absoluteness where it all belongs to me—emotionally speaking.

    Without them . . .

    . . . we are robots--just walking about missing the smell of the roses.

    When we are alive!

    I truly believe we are most alive when our senses are tingling, are nerves are jangled and our hearts are pounding in our chests--then we live--Amun-Ra :toast:
