    Question get choked in the throat

    Hello,


    Sometimes a strange feeling overcomes us with tears pressing behind our eyes; following that we can’t speak and a mixture of sorrow and regret conquers us.

    Concepts are usually lexicalized across languages; yet, I haven’t come across the right word in which the above mentioned concept is packaged in English.
    Naturally such a word should contain some literary sense.

    Do you have any suggestions?

    THANK YOU

    Choked up expresses what you are saying. For example,
    "He was too choked up to speak." Choked up conveys sorrow or upset, and the feeling we get when we are close to tears, when it is very difficult to speak because of the emotion we are feeling.

    Thank you,

    Now please consider this stanza:

    " The aura is mist-filled,
    A haze of silence and choking up "

    IS it natural?

    I can't get anything from it this way.
    What do you want to say? Or, better, do you have what goes before and after?
