Echoes of A Dead Heart

Echoes of A Dead Heart

A Chapter by Dr. YumnaKay
"

Inspired by فانيسا (Vanessa's) piece ~ The Breaking of Hearts...

"
Have you ever felt dead? 

Feeling like those rustling leaves one walks over, crushing them underneath the feet, their crackling noise just adds to your exhilaration
​,
 
just as my shallow breath causes me to succumb to this feeling of doom, like nothing could be put right now.

I feel this, as a rushing wave crosses over, overlapping the sands of time, almost crashing the possibility that I'll ever be alive again. 

To feel that beating, pulsing heart whisper your name over and over again.

Is there no end to the pain I feel? That aching heart ~ the cries of which never reached you
​,​
 

as you moved along to play another one of your lustful
games, laying me bare in my full vulnerability. 

That aching heart ~ you stumbled upon, now lies - 

and I watch the last drops of blood drain from it, my eyes close but not before I see the pattern they've formed - 

it seems vaguely like your name, the last thing that I'll ever see...

Oh my, dark stuff from a bright light! There are hints of wondering where to go with this story. 'Feel as if you altered direction.. went from dark to, 'well, maybe not'. But then, that's what happens with life's hurt, or the imagination's bewilderment.

Your writing grows day by day.

very engaging for me ...i am kind of inclined to dissect it ... something i don't usually do .. opening line is instant engagement .. one must answer .. mine was "no" i haven't .. then i am led to understand how fallen leaves feel when trod on and i answer ...oh yeh ..i know what you mean .. then the person changes and i am the one crushing ..and liking it ... for me...it would be more clear saying something like: "...leaves others walk over... ' and "...adds to their exhilaration.."
i think the next two "couplets" are very emotive and deepen the mood of feeling "dead" .. in this write i think using the "sands of time" cliche might be stronger if you said it your own creative way ...the rest is, again very emotive and sticks to the theme .. closing, i think is very strong ..
your poem is emotive, heartbreaking, honest and contains the vulnerability that broken bleeding hearts have (at least initially) .. i feel for your speaker ...i want to say ..oh man...i am so sorry for this pain and sorrow you carry ..so great job in that respect for me!

I would say there isn't anything to wonder...
Here's what's unusual about this message . . . you start out asking if a person ever felt dead, but then you go ahead & describe the feelings with so much bright vivid detail, it actually feels like the opposite of being dead. I definitely understand this sentiment well. I love your imaginative phrasing & word choices & analogies here.
