overwhelmed by emotions

misgivings of a
broken heart was it for real
wretched morose like?

not to negotiate
overwhelmed by emotions
starved of good reasons

vicious warped feelings
wickedly drained but the strong
would remain triumphant

Chev's Carpe Diem #1181-  broken heart

    Best not to get them out of proportion.
    A great write.

  5. Nice nesting of Haiku/Senryū, Hank.
    I like your ending,
    "the strong would remain triumphant"
    I.e, 'tough but be strong and survive the ordeal.'
