Her heart trembles with sadness,
As they pull the strings of her heart out one by one,
Unraveling her very soul,
Her veins pulse with the agony of grief,
Eyes sting in protest,
Trying not to let the tears cascade down her face,
Her lips quiver,
Teeth sink in,
All in attempt to hold back,
One slip is all it takes,
Her breathing falters,
Coming in short gasps,
All in a wave,
Her emotions break free,
Her tears fall like raindrops after a dead spell,
They roll down the slopes and hills of her smooth face,
Splattering on the floor,
She stands gasping for air,
Grieving with love,
Dying for understanding.

i liked this poem alot, it describes the uncertanty of love and how it can effect anyone. i also liked how it described that when her heart had been broken she didnt want to let the emotions come forth, but couldnt hold them back. it drew my attention to the meaning and the poem itself. i give it a five.

Hey, I'll look for you in the creative communications book! I'm not sure how we can talk cause teen ink restricts people from giving out personal info

Hey, I'll look for your poem in Creative Communications! I really haven't been published any where. I did win a Gold Key Regional Scholastic prize for "The Orchard of Hope". I'm not sure how I can email you...Go to my "About Me" section. I think I found a way.
