Human Emotions
Love is a mask, a shell if you will
a cover up of something sinister with skill.
Behind these feelings of pleasure and warmth
lye many,many more emotions to distort.
Easily provoked and you don't know why,
this feeling of jealousy now consumes you
inside.
A very strong feeling of love and hate,
will make your entire body completely
shake.
A complex emotion that is tricky to defeat,
but if you remain nice and calm this
feeling will retreat.
Life exists to revolve around these passions,
without these mixed emotion we humans reproduce
nothing.

without mixed emotion we humans produce nothing...i love that profound line. the poem is great. a very straightforward title about content that i've not seen much in poetry...at least not directly. i like the use of the word "shell" - that's perfect. the only line (this is the english lit coming out in me) that I would've liked better (flow wise) would be "will cause your body to uncontrolably shake" - make your body completely shake sounds a bit awkward for the rest of this well written poem. i love the flow and the style. again, unique and also awesome. - you challenge a reader to really feel.
