Okay, I took a whack at Lyrics.  I believe they meet the criteria, with a little rhyming added (sorry, AC, I can't resist), except for the thought vs. emotion part.  But that's not surprising since I don't differentiate well between the two.

Read and enjoyed. I'll leave you some comments over there :)

I have absolutely no clue who wrote this, or where it comes from. But I thought I would share it with you all.

@BHopper2  I was curious myself as to who wrote that poem. The title isn’t in your post, but it’s called Fire was written by Nikita Gill. The book it’s in is called Wild Embers. The second link has links for some of the poems in the book.

Not glass, a paper heart,

cutting all the same.

It can stay whole yet free

blood from helpless vein.

 

I either bleed or cut,

must I always choose?

Already so much pain,

Only blood to lose.

 

Pain is what I choose.

 

EDIT: Holy crap this sounds angsty.  I'm all right.  LOL

Glad you’re okay. It sounds so full of hurt.

I just had an idea, and want to see if there's much interest in participating. The three-year anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub killings is coming up in June. It might me nice if we as a poet community on GA come up with a collection to post here together. I think this collection can be both a gathering of poems written at the time, and now as the three-year mark approaches. 

 

What do you think...?

I'd like to contribute something for this, AC.  I have some ideas.  Thanks it's a worthwhile project.

Tell your friends and neighbors about this Pulse effort. It would be really nice for GA to 'represent' :)

 

And I envision our collection including not only new works, but also those written at or near the time of the tragedy. So please remember to send those poems too.
