There's a pain that never goes away. (Trigger warning)


by cjhale


1. To feel eager; yearn; long. 2. A continuous dull pain, (in contrast to a sharp, sudden or sporadic pain.)

It aches in the place,

Where lines and scars coat my skin, like a prison cell, with red and white bars.

It aches in my arms,

As they hang limply at my side. They long to wrap around something warm and solid, but anxiety won't let them.

It aches in my legs,

As I stand motionless in the shadow, trying to move, but me feet are planted in the ground and I can't escape.

It aches in my heart,

I thought I had lost it, but more of it remained then I thought, it is there alright, but I can feel it slowly breaking.

There's an ache in my soul.

And it's killing me slowly.

The writing is very good. It is a mechanically correct poem. The subject was so deep and dark that it sounds like a manifesto of depression and ruination. Good job.
