I have these aches that permeate every part of me.
These aches are in my muscles, bones, blood, brain.
There’s an ache that vibrates my mind and an ache that drills into my soul.
I feel these aches when I’m awake and when I barely asleep.
These aches seem to take place of all the pieces I’m missing; I’m missing a lot.
I feel as if I’m living in this black hole of misery and elongated pain.
Even if I do laugh or smile I still have these aches surrounding me.
Then I have guilt but at least I still have my aches to allow me to feel something true.
Sometimes the only truth I have is the crippling throb of sorrow and heartache.
With each twist and turn the ache deepens and I can’t break away.
Many times the only thing I can feel are the aches that confine me to myself.
I’m fenced in by fear of what’s to come.
For I know these aches are apart of me now.
I’ve lost too much for them to ever disappear.
