Tonight

Day 30 of NaPoWriMo. And so with a sad heart i say goodbye to NaPoWriMo 2022. It has been an awesome monthlong of writing poetry.

Tonight

tonight i could sing the most heartbreaking song
with mournful melody that could break anyone’s soul apart
with a sad refrain that summarizes the agonizing suffering of a heart in pain.

how can there be so much pain in a heart where there is so much joy?

tonight i could dance in the saddest most powerful impulsive way
channeling my inner intensely expressive self that may murder the spirits of spectators who feel no wish to dance themselves.

how can there be no other emotion that has the ability to make you feel both indescribable joy and deep fear and sadness, sometimes simultaneously?

tonight i could write the most lonesome poetry
for there is nothing more beautiful than to a poem written by poet whose heart is not just broken but shattered in million pieces where no amount of careful skillful hoisting could assemble it back together.

is it really better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all?

tonight i could utter the saddest word ever, and it says your name.

  1. Tonight you’ve written a moving piece, and my heart stopped beating a moment to listen to the intensity of those lines, how they revealed the emotions and feeelings of a soul that has been shuddered and broken a million times, yet still strong. You have overcome it dear. Otherwise you wouldn’t be writing. Now feel the relief, pick up your pieces and tread on with confidence that your enemies may feel the might of your resilient movement, like that of a chariot of soldiers rushing home in victory. Amazing poetry. Tonight. A new dawn now awaits. 👏❤❤

  4. This is such a heart-touching, honest poem, SweetMich. Each of us has felt the brokenness, pain, loss, sadness, and longing you write about here. We can relate. We understand.
    Are you okay? I hope you are okay.
    Lord Byron said, “The heart will break, but the broken live on.” And there is healing, joy…and a world full of new beginnings, new opportunities.
