Pain


Pain is:
The disappointing overflow of a shaken soda can
- A pop and a fizzle
- Liquid dripping from my fingertips
The burning of the chest and a heartbeat skipped
The unwanted embrace of pushed away memories
The remembrance of failure and shame
A phantom feeling
- Quick and sharp
- Vivid but hidden
A face in the mirror looking back at me
- Familiar yet forgotten
- An unwelcome sight
Anger
Fear
Grief
Sadness
Anguish
Hate
Knowing that I will never be enough
- To others
- To my family
- To myself
The melody of a broken heart
- Bittersweet and melancholy
Knowing that I am me
- And I can never change that
