What is pain?
Is it different to each person?
Or is it all just the same?
Is it the connection between your skin and a cane?
Or is it the result of hearing a name?
As I am young, i do not understand
What pain truly is,
Or why it hurts like this,
But to me it’s an ache in my chest
When my mind will not rest
But my thoughts dwell in you
Your beautiful smile
The touch of your lips when we kiss
And even when you whisper my name
Softly called from barely parted lips
All these things cause this ache
And as my thoughts begin to wonder
To you…me…we and what we seemed to be
The ache would steadily increase
Evolving from a purring kitten
To a roaring lion and further still
Until it consumes me and robs me
Of my sleep, my appetite
And even the ability to stand on my own two feet
And it will go on
Until I see you again
Feel you in my arms,
Which will cause my heart to race
And almost triple in pace
But until then all that remains
Is this ache that brings me close to tears
