Emotional Loss


Some drink to take away pain.
Some eat and try to forget.
Some think and try to just stay sane.
Some cry big tears so wet.

And still the pain is unending
and never seems to leave.
Some hide their feeling deep inside.
And some wear it on their sleeve.

Whatever the method, whatever the way
it really matters not.
The only thing you’re sure of
is the loss is what you’ve got.
