Pain Neglected


Hello is there anybody out there?
Have you seen my happiness
or my contentment?

I swear I left them here.

First:
I have sat with pain,
I met him on my way to suffering.

I gave him my tears,
I gave him my last year’s.

Like a candle in the wind,
My flame couldn’t fight the chaos
of the hurricane which snuffed
my embers out.

My wax oozed down to
the table’s edge,
slowly approaching the end.

Oh can you see me now,
I’m falling down.

Pain neglected to mention,
He would be staying
for a long long while.

I’ve been hurting for a while now.
Pain sat for a while,
now he has neglected me.
He left me with suffering.
