I drink love in thirsty gulps

From the desert of my soul

But, if I send it out again

Will it return to me?

Or will I die of thirst,

A bitter, broken woman?

I love this one. Great imagery, and the message is profound. Also, I can relate. This could be my siren Well done:)

Since my heart has been broken so many times, sometimes I feel that I might "die of thirst" if I fall in love again. There are times that I fear loving again, but then I am reminded that each man is unique, and that if I do not love again, I will not quench my thirst for love.
Everyone needs to love again, but it takes time. However, we must remember that in our journey through life, we need love and we need to open our hearts to love again. We can learn by our mistakes, and sometimes having our heart broken will make us stronger. So, open your heart and quench your thirst for love! It is worth the risk!

Outstanding imagery in "From the Bottom of My Heart" makes this composition a soul's striking poetic pondering.

In admiration,

Dear Kathy:
I have sometimes had similar thoughts, wondering if it is better to love enjoying the rewards of relationships knowing there will come a time to suffer the inevitable pain of loss, or to hold back on the passions of so much love I have to give because sometimes that comes back to bit when the love is not reciprocated. Thank you for giving your readers a place to know your heart.

Kathryn, such a sweet, lonely poem! Thanks so much for baring your soul to us! -- Sara
Reviewed by Richard Orey 7/15/2007
This poem speaks to the sensitive soul suffering with the universal lack of self-confidence.
A trite response would be to cite the oft-quoted: "What goes around comes around."
A more considered response would be to quote from my poem, A Lovely Rose:

"For only tender souls may touch
In magic born of heart
And dare to dream of times to come
When they're not far apart
For all we have in life is Love"

I think one who drinks love "in thirsty gulps" is so much in need there's not time to check the quality of the well.

It's sad to note that far too many of us lie victims of a modern, instant-gratification society that produces too many "one-night stands" and too few committed relationships.

In 34 words, your poem generates a lot of synaptic activity. Me thinks a cold beer on the patio is in order while I ponder this further.

A nicely phrased, provocative write, Kathryn. I'll be back to read more of you.
