June 2020 Feels
This has been a month of extraordinary emotion – in the news, at home, on the streets. What are some lesser used English words that could describe how people are feeling?
A deep and chronic pain.
Mind jumping hummingbird-like, from one thought to another.
Inflamed with anger.
A head-splitting pain in the forehead, like a metal rod is being pressed right through the bone.
Filled with sorrow. Gloomy.
So, so tired.
A deep longing; grieving that which is lost.
A fiery push for freedom.
Eyes suddenly open, a flashbulb revelation.
Homesick or nostalgic for a home that is gone forever or, perhaps, that never existed.
Too anxious to sleep.
Realizing that the strangers who pass you on the street have lives as colourful and complicated as your own.
