I have a word on the tip of my tongue, but I’m not sure what it is. I’ve checked synonyms of words to see if something matched what I was thinking, but I can’t figure it out. I used Google’s generic thesaurus and “One Word” thesaurus.
A term for a message, song or poem that is sad but intense. Like a psalm or lament(as a noun) but without the connotation of numbness or lack of action. Something more desperate, almost soulful. Wrenching, yearning, woeful. Like a word to describe a dialogue reaction to deep injustice. I swear there is a word that captures this accurately, but I can’t think what it is.
A sample sentence would be something like: “After thinking about [some type of injustice], John let out a blank(as a noun)” or “After thinking about [some type of injustice] John released a blank(as an adjective) song(or exclamation)” or perhaps phrased differently. Sorry if this is a bit confusing, but that’s why I need help defining it!
