A Poem by Sarah Lynn

A wave of relief washes over her;
Warm electric jolts flood her body
Her stomach does that knotting thing again.
Finally, she's been noticed again
But only for a brief moment
The feeling fades
The word wonder comes to mind
Will it always be this way?
Will she always wonder?
Something that was so close, nearly in the palm of her hand at one point seems so far once again.
Maybe she should have pushed more
Maybe she should have been more persistent
There had to have been something she could have done differently.
Does God really work in mysterious ways?
Does everything always happen for a reason?
Will this feeling ever fade or disappear?
Or will it always be there .. jabbing into her stomach.
Always itching to be noticed.
Always wondering if she's been forgotten.
Forever wondering if she's really good enough.
Forever wondering what the future holds.
Will she ever get the happily ever after she's dreamed of ?
Will she ever get .. him ?

I haven't decided what this is to be exact . It just came to my head so I wrote as it came to mind. Unsure if this qualifies as a poem, I may add this in to a book I'm writing actually. Haven't decided yet. Enjoy !

This has a wonderfully improvised flow to it. Very poetical. Full of longing and portiebtial regret, but also hope for an imaged future. There’s lots of ideas that could stem off like river connections into wider seas. Lovely stuff

Most poetry doesn't say anything, doesn't have any raw emotion. Just platitudes. Unlike this. It's definitely poetry.

Well, this reads like a poem to me atleast.. And it's good too!

"Maybe she should have pushed more
Maybe she should have been more persistent
There had to have been something she could have done differently."
These lines here, they feel like they have double meanings 😉
But in context of your poem, I feel the longing, the tension rising, the uncertainty in this ia very well depicted!
I liked reading this! Good work ☺👍
