Aching.

Written 3/2/11.

Agony,

I fall apart,

There's deepening cracks,

In my aching heart.

 

Confusion,

I hide behind,

The masses of thoughts,

In my aching mind.

 

Defeat,

A great gaping hole,

The torrents of emotion,

In my aching soul.

 

Love,

It's you I know best,

You make my heart beat,

Beneath my aching chest.

 

N.Sexton

The End
