Overcoming Emotion
Elizabeth Clark

Touch, Bleed, Wait, Taste, Feel
Red, Copper, Sting, Cry, Kneel
The moments I remember best
are ones that leave the ache in my chest,
the ones where teardrops touch pale skin,
welling from deep pools raging within.

To think of these times, I feel at a loss.
Overcoming emotion, a rough bridge to cross.
