Pain To End All Pain

My heart yearns for a love unchanging. 

Aches from a fear unfading. 

I wake and fail before day ever begins. 

Begging for an end to all the pain I feel.

Engulfed in a searing dryness from those meant to help me.

Salvation coming in the form of hard and cold and red.

Steady as a heartbeat.

To end all heartbeats.

Broken by the breath I breath.

Held together by lies and fake laughs.

Suffering from unending ignorance.

Needing the pain to end all pain.

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
