Pain
Red, hot
Flashing pain
Lacing
Climbing
Stretching
Hurting
Pulling
Breaking
Ripping
Clenching
Pain
Tears pouring
Running
Flowing
Dripping
Falling
Coursing
Down my cheeks
Heart wrenching
Mind racking
Body trembling
Soul throbbing
I just can't take this
I am being torn
Shattered
Battered
Bruised
Crushed
Ruined
Destroyed
Bu I must outlast this agony
Oh, but there is so much pain
This hurts so very, very much
Can anyone tell me
How to numb the pain
In my heart
In my soul?
