Gelatin Ooze

Hello, I’ve returned. 🙂

I have finals this week for the classes I’m taking.  But … It’s going to be okay.

Heh.

Anyways, I have another poem, one that might or might not be indirectly inspired from studying for the tests.  I actually don’t remember — I’m not trying to be cryptic.  I wrote the poem, then fell asleep.

 

Gelatin Ooze

I can’t be blamed
for the way my heart
behaves, a runaway pounding
drone running like
clockwork. Squishing
gelatin ooze
that no one can hold
in bare hands
or basket.
Clockwork.
Hear the ticking?
misbehaving
pounding
skip a beat
again
call it anxiety
but that term—
mild it may be—
couldn’t do this
trembling
justice.
When emotions
bubble out
at the seams
of a runaway
heartbeat.

 

I hope you liked it!  Thank you so much for reading.
