R is for random
LaLa16

unexpected random break downs
 1
tears crush this "happiness"
 2
out of no where
 3
in class,
 4
on the steering wheel,
 5
on the computer,
 6
on the floor,
 7
on my pillow.
 8
it rains everyday in my head
 9
it floods
 10
leaking through the lids of of my eyes
 11
in thick full droplets
 12
no barricade or sandbags
 13
can hold back this raging emotion.
 14
it escapes
 15
only to come right back
 16
finding me
 17
in my classes,
 18
my car,
 19
my desk,
 20
the floor of my room,
 21
and at night on my pillow.
 22
it breaks through my concentration, my thoughts, my dreams, my heart.
 23
i break.
 24
i am still alive, still laugh, still smile, i still try
 25
but now,
 26
with endless streams of tears that run randomly
 27
they run
 28
they land on my lips
 29
the taste is foreign
 30
as if i had never cried before.

this message is obvious and i have an idea of what you wanted to say but it gets muddled in the writers head. i like it though.

I like it. Maybe swap "emotion" for "ocean", "stream" or "river" - line 14.
