I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
Torment is a poem about how a man feels when he breaks his woman's heart then realizes he made a mistake.
He suffers from nightmares. He has moments when he can hardly breathe. He has a heartache that lingers through the night. He is reminded he can not touch her for she is no longer by his side.
"Man Enough Now" by Chris Bandi
He’s tormented with nightmares
since shattering her dreams
with the sharp edges of broken glass.
A prickly thorn
stabs his every breath
for leaving her alone
to face the wickedness.
A lingering heartache
knocks him to his knees
in the quiet of the night
when he misses her tender touch.
A fate full of lessons
bulldoze his heart
forbidding him to touch
the petals of her rose.
"Pretty Heart" by Parker McCollum
