I’m human

po-ball
I cry
because it helps
I relieve 
my
anxiety
my 
emotions

I'm human
I'm woman
I need to express 
It's how I was made
It's who I am

Sometimes I'm a ball of tears
all wound up
rolling on the floor
laughing
crying
spitting
choking
giggling
punching

all the emotions come forth
and coalesce into one giant ball of string
that instantaneously unravels
throughout me
sprawled on the floor
an open tangled web 
waiting to be rolled up again neatly 
and put on a shelf

I was born in San Jose/Silicon Valley and raised in the Bay Area. I have been writing poetry since I was a child and recently started to share it. I read some poems at a Poetry meeting for the first time last year. I have co written, produced and directed children's theater in the East Bay. I have self published a guide to eco-friendly, second hand shopping and recycling "90% OFF Every Day! available on Amazon and Kindle. I have worked as an Actress, Make-up Artist for Film/TV and Face Painter, Costume Designer and run a small business selling vintage clothing (pop-ups). https://www.facebook.com/894408793925661/videos/vb.894408793925661/908989729134234/?type=2&theater https://www.instagram.com/dianasdressingroom/ https://www.imakefaces.com http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0854952/ https://www.yelp.com/biz/i-make-faces-vallejo https://www.facebook.com/DianasDressingRoom/ https://www.facebook.com/imakefacess/
