‘Sick To The Stomach’

‘Sick To The Stomach’

A Poem by ‘Thoughts In Time’🌹
"

The sickening sensations of love of one kind🌹

"
Sick To The Stomach:

The tangled
Knot
A spasmed
Clot

Of what
I’ve got
Or
What
I’ve not-

It’s squeezed
It’s taught
Confused in
Thought-
With wrath
It’s laid to
Lie

Deep sickening
Of what this
World brings

The choices
Bearing voices
On my heart
It rings-
Desperately
Sings
Or
Screams

Is it the
Stealer
Of my dreams

So

It seems-

Is it too much
To ask
Remove me from
The complicated
Bask within this task

I did not ask
To feel -
I know what’s
Real

Their part
To play
Come what may
All have their day
There will be a way-

Can cause dismay

Please you cannot
Afford to go astray

Like pieces of paper
Scrunched and scribbled
Sickness without sound
Emotions flying around

Butterflies without
Wings
My heart
It stings

Throw open your
Heart
Return to the start
Choose what you
Were so afraid
To lose

It’s all an important
Part to completing
The heart
Otherwise it’s
Bruised and falling
Apart-

Choose what’s real and true
Begin to love you

It’s only then
You’ll meet your biggest
Most treasured freind

And the sinking sickness
Will rise upon the tide
Of true love-
Take the cover off
The deepest part
Of your heart-
Reveal the true you
Trust in knowing
It’s the best to do

Return from lost
At any cost-
It’s just waiting to
Be found

In the stomach
So sick
There lies the trick
To becoming
In tune -

Let love rise
Like a
Hot
Air balloon.

' Let love rise ~ Like a hot Air balloon. '

Yes, yes, and yes! Your entire poem from start to finish, yearns the right of love, the pain of it, the marks it leaves in searching. Yet, in spite of that you use - albeit gulped - phrases that paint a more than complete canvas.

Before I forget: 3rd stanza, 2nd line -- I wonder if you mean "taut" instead of "taught"??
I like the way you use the title line to describe a relationship or a love feeling in terms that are unusual & original. About the middle, I was thinking -- it would be nice to see "sick to the stomach" imagery used a little more, but then toward the end, I see that you did just that. Good job of conveying the way it feels when past experiences conjure fear like nausea, with tons of strong imagery (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

That it is.
Your flow and style lends itself well to the chaos that love does bring to our lives. I don't think there is any other emotional state that can give us as many highs and despairing lows just like love can.

I enjoyed this write for its truth, its flow of rhyme and overlapping images. You have a unique style of rhyming free verse. Nicely conceived and constructed.

I agree dear Kelly. Can't stop love or a hurricane.
"i chase the bright elusive butterfly of love" (bob lind)

and i am reminded of marriages gone bad...and that constant tightness in the stomach---we have no control...takes over the heart, mind and body---until it's over and we can breathe again.
