NaPoWriMo #4

Is there a word for
that feeling
in the back of the throat
a heaviness,
a contraction;
or the prickling feeling
around the eyes
just before they
rim with unshed tears,
that comes when
something so lovely
and so sad
unfolds?
What word encompasses
those visceral reactions
to one’s psyche?
Descartes, what were you thinking?
