Bitter Hearts

By Thadeus Emmanuel

PROMPT — Despite ...

When our hearts are bitter

And tears oozing like spring water

You will find it best to cry, harder

With more nerves just to feed the flame

And then, with a feel of a pinch of-

pleasure, yet undefined.

The tints of sadness plastered around

Will be flushed with a rush of tears

And the thirst of anger quenched

With a dearth of a bitter heart.
