Pain You Feel



The pain you feel is yours alone
though others wish to share.
The pain you feel hurts to the bone and seldom spins a care.
The pain you feel is hard to hide
though others find a trace.
The pain you feel hurts deep inside and seldom in your face.
The pain you feel is singular
though others cast a claim.
The pain you feel hurts beyond cure and seldom has a name.
The pain you feel is abashing
though others give short shrift.
The pain you feel hurts as thrashing and seldom seems to lift.
The pain you feel is personal
though others swear to know.
The pain you feel hurts secretly and seldom makes a show.
The pain you feel is always there
though others see it gone.
The pain you feel hurts like despair and seldom yields to dawn.
