My pain



My relentless companion

ever there

ever waiting

My pain


Now louder — did it hear its name?

Drumming into me with each footfall 

 on the hardening sand

I stop to rest, it smiles quietly.

It lies in wait for me to grow weary

and then it is THERE



BURNING a hole in my deepest secret flesh


OW – go away

what do you want from me

what did I do

why do you haunt me


Leave me

Let me be

Let me live

Let me work

Let me love
