(An A to Z Challenge entry)
There is this ache I cannot explain–
a pulsating throb that echoes in my rib cage,
yearning to EXPLODE
through my right breast.
My face flushes with heat. Tears flood my eyes.
Panic sets in.
Empathy, sadness, worry, fear, tension, frustration, devastation.
There is no warning sign.
No way to prepare.
It’s my heart attack of emotions.
