The Way Your Stomach Turns - Poem by Maddi Eden

everyone knows what i'm talking about.
when your stomach flips, inside.
come on, don't pretend you don't know.

it's when you remember you've left your keys inside the house
or when you don't get the job
or even, when your phone rings and you know it might be him.

it's when you realise you have an enemy
or when you're stabbed in the back
or perhaps, it's when you're so happy you feel you could die.

funny, isn't it? the way your stomach turns.
