How?

How?

A Poem by Scarlet Pulse

Wondering how

I’m still breathing

Crumpled and puffy faced

I’m still seeing

Haunting words repeated over

and over in my empty mind

I’m still hearing

Today I had my heart ripped out

How am I still being?

"ing" is used a lot here. The repetition of the verbs is quite entertaining...

This poem was awesome. Even though it was short it had a ton of meaning. We all have a time when we feel this way with someone or something I guess you could say. I really enjoyed this little write of yours. Glad I took a minute to read this. I havent really read anything of yours in a very long time! Nicely done again!

Scarlet,
I hear your heart crying out in agony, and the emotions are no less real for being raw. What I would love to see is you working some with these feelings, in order to give their ragged edges some beauty. This has the potential for being truly incredible poetry. Are you up to the challenge--trust me, it is NOT an easy one!

The last lines are very interesting, and they save the poem. The poem's cry is clear, but it feels like something's missing. . .

The pain of a heart brake leave us in disappointment and wanting time to think. A powerful poem. Complete poem was a amazing. You said so much in so few words.
