Aching Heart

by Michelle Dennis Evans Gushing, running Feelings blunt Lurching luring Wet with anxiety Dripping from rain Flipped out over everything Hushed by sanity Denied by love Aching heart Wrenched out Given away Washed down stream

"Lurching, luring"

I don't know why, but that line stuck in my mind from the second I read it.

"Wet with anxiety" - "Washed down stream" - perfect way to desribe someone crying (if that's what you were doing. . . if not, that's what I took from it!)

Great work - I can't wait to see more!

Michelle, your words make me want to extend my hand to you and pull you from the sadness. And, to tell you that everything will be OK. Just believe that it will!

Your poem evokes a very strong emotion.

Hushed by sanity is a lovely turn of words.

Beautiful poetry, Michelle!

A lot of emotion in very few words. Beautiful, Michelle!

Thanks for the lovely comments.
Cynthia it's not me aching - it would be one of my fictional characters :)
