Mixed up - but not so...

It's horrible.

Dead emotions
Kept chained away from the truth
Never to be set free
Never to meet
On pain of death.
The ear hears
The eye sees.
You say, "Oh,"
And the emotions sleep on
Unaware
Of all that they should know.
For then, they would laugh...?
No.
Sneer...?
No.
Cry...?
Probably.
But that would never do.
Best to keep the dark dungeon locked.
Barred windows
The emotion locked in
The truth locked out.
Why?
Fear...?
No.
Or, maybe...
Yes, that's it.
That's what it is _
Fear that when they meet
I would cry
Die.
What is this truth?
Truth for the world to see
But a horrible
Awesome truth
Not for the eyes of my heart _
It would break.
