Feelings Of The Heart - Poem by jeannetta harris

What is love…
Is it the fluttering in your stomach
The knot in your throat
The tightness in your chest

What is lust…
Is it the heat radiating throughout your body
The tingle in your shy places
The tightness in your chest

What is hate…
Is it the sickening feeling you get
The clenched fists
The tightness in your chest

What is loneliness…
Is it the empty feeling
The tears streaming down your face
The tightness in your chest

    Feelings of the Heart is beautiful I do Haiku, and feel that
    we don't need so many lines to get a message across, I see
    some great work coming out of your poetry, I witness the
    tightness of my chest frequently, as I have a stent, and all
    anxieties are noticed, I know the feeling.
