No Pain

No Pain

A Poem by Craig Rozniecki

No Pain

A sore throat,
A hamstring strain,
A broken nose,
I feel no pain,

An ear infection,
An ankle sprain,
A jammed finger,
I feel no pain,

A stiff back,
A sunburnt face,
A violent cough,
I feel no pain,

My body aches,
Morning, noon and night,
A doctor tells me I’m sick,
I feel no pain,

I catch you with another man,
Screaming his name,
A dagger inserted in my chest,
I feel numb,

A knot forms in my stomach,
I feel betrayed,
The pounding of my heart,
As it shatters and breaks,

The love I hold for you,
Carries with it more weight,
Than every ache and illness,
I now feel pain,

I feel it in my stomach,
I feel it in my chest,
I feel it in my throat,
With every last breath,

The pain runs sharp,
The pain runs deep,
As you made the cut,
And let me bleed.

I'll be honest (like this is something new for me...), I'm not sure what to write here. It's not a singles ads, so even though I like long walks on the beach, I don't see much point in mentioning that.. more..
