FEELINGS

FEELINGS

A Poem by Ellen Hammond


Tossing, turning, restless night
Sensing, knowing, keen insight
Aching, breaking, heart like glass
Praying for the pain to pass


Intense feelings, little hope
Must sort out, so I can cope
Which are absorbed? Which are mine? 
Search my soul, find blurred line


Strong emotions rise and grow
tears well up and overflow
Seek more answers, do the math
Such is life for this Empath

How hard it is to shake off another person's pain and stress. If entrusted with something so fragile, it becomes a burden one needs to share. Your meter in the poem is very fine but must have caused its own stress, maybe. You had to do justice to you own deep feelings. Perhaps.

Grand to see you here.. so hope you're able to stay a while.

A very smooth rhyming flow... pain is no greater than being alone in the dark.
