Aged Pain

Aged Pain



biding my time


While swallows of

translucent orange suck


the acorn of life outside

my fishnet cracked window.


Reminiscing old

pains from lovers past


I take another sip and rest

the bottle upon the chair.


In a flurry of synapse

driven emotions,


I break the bottle

upon the wall;


Spilling the contents and watching

them bleed the carpet a vibrant amber


Aged pain never goes down easily,

and it always burns the worst

  1. Poem of depth and despair. Most beautiful if it weren’t so heartbreaking.
