Cut Loose

Your words make me strained and pained
Leaving me nothing to otherwise gain
As I would be better off in the cold freezing rain
Than standing here swallowing imagined blame

    that one can really hurt – I think the thought that would or could or does happen …

    you deal with it and resolve it well – I’ll take a bit of rain rather than heart drain


  4. “Standing here swallowing imagined blame.” Killer line, Michael. Lots of impact in a minimum of words, very effective. Amy


  5. A known feeling..well expressed through your poetic realms!!


  6. Cutting – but real. 🙂
