And You Always Asked Me………why? - Poem by Nick Kler

And you always asked…………why?
Imagine a worst toothache in the world
Now imagine that in your every bone
That is the pain my soul goes through
Every moment of everyday

Ever since I've gained consciousness
I've been trying to numb this pain
There is no one that I can really blame
It's always those that are my own

Ever since I was a child
Well into the holy bonds of a married life
With a baton of eternal love
One by one, they stumped me to the ground
Piercing holes into my skin
Blaming me for everything
That ever went wrong in their life

This treasure of soars and scars
Can be see upon my skin from far
Some were gifted to me by this world
And some I inflicted on my own
Just so that I could feel again

I'm nothing more than a living ghost
Hardly ever acknowledged
by the one's I love the most
Without a voice or an identity
Neither a home nor a country
Truly a homeless to the core

And you always ask me…………….. why?
