To The Extreme

I feel in extremity.
The loudness and violence
Of the voice,
I cannot endure it.
The dried-up rocks,
Feel the water surge in
From above.
My eyes,
Feel the blood surge in
From below.
I feel too much,
I do not mean to.
A flower when given
Too much water,
When given too little,
Dies still.
It feels too much,
It doesn't mean to.
