There is a constant reminder
of being broken and half complete.
It lingers in my body;
I cannot sleep,
I dare not dance,
I might walk for a while…
but the fire inside is deep
where no man can touch,
and it burns my body.
I feel weak.

'Good morning' it says at three
'Afternoon' it moans to me
'Good evening my dear friend'…
it is the burn that never sleeps.

I am a slave to its constant reminder
that it is not leaving me,
but rather kindling it's animosity
by controlling my mind
controlling my body
controlling me

Pain is no friend of mine
but Pain never leaves me behind
