When your pain is tangible
You can reach out and touch it.
It’s everywhere, consuming you.
You don’t even realize how lon_____g
it’s been eating away at your insides, until
they finally cave in and c
The terrible tightening in your chest.
The constriction of your lungs.
The deep, shudder, breaths as you try to hold back the inevitable-
Then you bre|ak
Now comes the painful,
Screaming silently, your damaged self
Seeping out through the c|r|a|c|k|s
That you flimsily repair each time you fall apart.
But this time those cracks have split wide open,
Leaving g a p i n g holes in your being.
You wail for a long time,
Weeping pitifully as you cry yourself a pool of self-sympathy,
You are empty,
Turned inside out.
