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.
