I Am Pain - Poem by Eli Unknown

eating away inside
im the feeling you can NO longer hide
there is a twisting pain
driving me insane
and in the mirror - that is who i blame
opening my heart to you
loving you without conditions
and did i mention
you played me for a fool
when i was only being a tool
a device to treat you nice
like a king - and i your queen
a light to shine in your darkness
and it is your wish to stay hidden
you want me to forget
yet each day i remember
waking up next to you
and wishing you a good morning
the shower water pouring over you
giddy as a school girl
when you would tie your tie
and softly kiss me bye
the world is pain
and you made mine disappear temporarily
i could soar in your presence
and now i am filled with emptiness




i am pain

i am the belly aching
getting over you
