Poem: Lost Pain

Living in a desert of pain you forget feelings.

You forget how the storm is made.

You forget how to shut the eyes so you your tears.

You lose to ability to run and hide.

All you know is pain.

Something that grips your heart and leaves a mark that no one can hide.

The day you left is when my pain began.

The day I dried, and the tears fell like the rain.

I tried to dry them, but I loved the pain.

It is no longer an enemy.

It is my strength to learn to live without you.

Will it last, I do not know?

Do I want it to, no.

I just want to live free without the worries of letting go.
