Pain

the thought makes my soul ache
dizzy and sickly stumbling through my thoughts
trying to make sense of chaos
all hope disintegrating with one word
confusion consumes me
i feel a need to understand
why all the words about a love that did not exist?
how can complacence suddenly become love and then just as suddenly be nothing?
my brain is swollen and fuzzy
my heart is swollen and throbbing
my body is tired and restless
if there is meaning in this, if there is a solution…
there is no explanation being offered, no known solution…
now…there is just pain
the walls close in every time i open my eyes
everywhere I look, everything i see reminds me of the pain
reminding myself to breath is a challenge
my brain ventures into odd and dark places
i question my strength and my sanity
the world has lost its color and shape
my eyes see only grey shades
blobs floating through space
time is lost to my senses
a single comfort
a single glimmer drawing me back from the brink
the angel in the darkness
still…now…there is just pain…
i must learn to contend with pain
