A Poem by

I close my eyes and begin to think

as I slowly feel my heart sink

as I feel the tears rolling down my face

and as they reach my lips with the salty taste.

I ask myself, why treat my heart like broken glass?

Why think about my wounds and the scares I have?

The past is dark and it's pain is still sharp.

Coming at me as a knife.

Creating a new scare, yet to not explain.

I hide my wrist, I hide my fear that i face everyday.

They say time heals all pian.

But how long tll i'm out from under this rain?

Deeply expressed feelings compiled into the few lines of this well-written poem. I really like your first four lines as they lay out your thoughts, reactions, and curiosity in rest of the poem. Nice going!

I like the rhyme and flow. Amazing

I like the rhyme scheme here, it moves the poem on well and gives it an upbeat feel which contrasts effectively with the dark subject matter, enhancing both the content and the rhythm. This poem is interesting because it is revealing, but not too revealing, like a modest swim suit, it makes the reader want to know more about the writer, about the moment, about the back story. Intriguing.

The spoken word quality works well to deliver disturbing thoughts and the subsequent feelings of anxiety. Evocative poem.
