Empty Pages

It is difficult to write when you are in pain
when you just want the pain to end
so you can write

Empty pages stare back at you
Wanting your words to fill them
You can sense their hunger, the need to be filled

But your words are angry
And you have already written
too much angry poetry about pain

Chronic pain leads to blank pages
with nothing written on them
for days

You will feel better, hopefully soon
and your empty pages will be filled
with the loving words that make you

  1. Beautiful expression. I always try not to write sad stuff but I guess its an important feeling that needs to be expressed somehow and poetry offers so much relief to sadness. Loved this
