Can You Hear Me? When I Cry - Poem by Kat Smith

Can you hear me?

when I cry
‘'why why why? ’’

Do you hear my moans?

My wails?

My grunts of pain?

Oh the pain

Like a knife, this is a sure and absolute pain

I fear it is the last thing i have to hold to.

cling to

I let the darkness swaddle me

Dear, darkness

Wrap me in your misery
cold as it is
it warms me
like death it assures me that I will not be bound to my pain

At least not forever
