Thoughts

Thoughts

Too loud to silence

Too large to contain

Swirling in the brain

That needs a break

Not to break

Down

    1. Thank you very much! Yes, thoughts need action; perhaps not all of them indiscriminately, but those that are very pressing probably do. I love your interpretation of my lines — they are ambiguous, so anyone can choose to what end to perceive them, and I do like your view.

  1. Love the wordplay in the last three lines: “… That needs a break not to break down.” I think giving the word “down” a line by itself was also extremely effective, as it created a sudden dip when I was reading the poem in my head. And a “sudden dip” is exactly what happens when we break down! 😊

    1. Thank you very much, Yusra, for your kind comment — it helps a lot that you told me specifically what worked for you! And yes, I admit that I was consciously going for this effect of a sudden dip reminiscent of a breakdown, so I’m glad that it worked for you. Thanks for stopping by and have a nice day with no breakdowns!
