Smoldering - Poem by NAYYAR SHABBIR AHMAD

Don’t try to console me
with words like:
“It gets better with time”
Believe me
it doesn’t!
It only get’s worse

Or, that:
“Pain eventually dulls”
I wish that were so
But, unfortunately
- no!

All one can expect in the future is

the slow burning recognition that
an acceptance and endurance of Life
is all there is
