a clenched fist
holds together
fragments of muscle
that once
pumped passion
through these veins
pulling tight beneath
the pit
pangs of salacity
stir gut emotions
with green disire
that is regurgitated
leaving a bitter taste.

Hi good poem.
Start with a capital at the beginning.
regurgitated is the word i think you was looking for.
Not great at spelling so have a collins at the side of me and still make mistakes.
Well written.

Loved the bile imagery of (regurgitated) "green desire". HeartSickness (with jealousy?) described gut-wrenchingly! Like too "once pumped passion". A pungently physical poem Lottie. Kipper.

I don't think a capital at the beginning is strictly necessary as it gives the impression of coming in mid-sentence, which adds more strength to the poem - which is already very strong. Good work Lottie.

Not nice feelings to have to be sure, but you have crystallised them really well - the body imagery hangs together so naturally - fist, muscle, veins, gut - good stuff. Well done!

Hi everyone

Thank you for all taking the time to read and comment. As always very much appreciated.

I wanted to try to do this slightly differently and am so glad it's worked!

Definately not nice feelings to have for sure.

Lottie :-)
