Battles within us

There are umpteen times when we stop by and wonder what the chaos and where it all emerged from. You feel engulfed and gasp for some space. It only takes a moment of self introspection and contemplation that you actually have been trapped in the momentary tumult of incoherent thoughts; sometimes unexpressed emotions. Bottled within a flow of fluid sentiments and a gurgle of pain. They twirl swiftly, sometimes stopping just to spew another gurgle of agony. We fight these battles on a quotidian basis; shuffling sentiments and unrestrained heartaches like a playful pack of cards. We build towers that come tumbling down with just a brief blow of cold air. The dreams we built were just not strong enough to hold each other together.  We decide to build another , but think better of it. We strategize to hold ourselves together, because falling apart is not what we are destined for.
Emotions and sentiments seem imprudent at the start, but they all start to make sense once they are pinned to our hearts. Tighter this time and not easily unfastened and even if they did, they are sure to leave harrowing scars.
Sometimes the battles within us are not fought alone; they are fought together.
