Writing Prompt Wednesday – “Tender”


shooting heart by wroquephotography

This heart is full

Already plump with a lifetime of emotion

I need another–larger, far more flexible

This heart is about to burst

The seams are fit to tear

And there is nothing able to contain what hides inside

All this time, all this strain to keep the contents in

My hands clutch at a chest that feels empty

And yet, they can’t do a thing to hold it all together

This heart feels dead

Too much to handle and no outlet for release

The pressure, so great it causes only pain

Every feeling only resulting in hurt

I’m sorry

This heart is already full
