PAIN

It started with a beating of my heart

A slow pulsating feeling in my brain

It continued to my fingers and toes

And numbed them so they had no where to go.

It begun to take over my body;

Injected me with sorrow

It was pain

Pain about my future,

Pain about my past

Pain about my present

Pain that it wouldn’t last

Pain about others

Pain about myself

Pain wrapped me in his arms and swaddled me like his baby

Pain riddled me with his words and imprisoned me with his promise

Pain rubbed all I couldn’t have in my face and stung me with the reality that it could attack me any day!

I fell in love with pain and we are married to this day!
