Write it out

Write it out

A Poem by Melissa Kesead

Write out the memories

write out the pain

write out confusion

and blot out the stain

 

Write out the hurt

and the heartache and stress

write out the love

and the tenderness

 

Write out the feelings

that no one has known

write out the fears

and the hopes that have flown

 

Write out the nightmares

write out the dreams

sew up the broken heart

tear out the seams

 

Write out the tortures

that ravage your soul

write out the passion

that makes you feel whole

 

Write out the people

who tear at your heart

write out the friendships

that make a new start

 

Write out emotion

and yearning and yen

write out your life

and then write out again

I really enjoyed this poem. The images that you evoke are strong and well executed.

That said, there is one little nit that you can feel free to ignore. I loved

sew up the broken heart

tear out the seams

as a stannd alone piece, but it jarred when I read it within the poem. It's a break in the strucure
you used in the rest of the poem. To me, its perfectly fine to break the flow like that, but it should signal a change in the rhythm in the poem. You alter the structure you follow for only one section but you don't give me any reason why you did it. Again, this might just be an odd little quirk for me, but there it is.

All that aside, I enjoyed this poem very much.
