my nameless pain

So vicious and twisting

it suffocates me

as if roots

were growing around my frail body

tightening with every thought of you.

i guess the seeds of our passion

have grown

and in your absence

attempt to choke me

there are no words

silence and feelings

a nameless pain

that shreds me

shredded

i feel completely shredded

no longer can i find solace in hiding

because the pain has discovered a way to find me

it hunts me and haunts me

and its starting to feel like

it will never let me go

a prisoner

of you

of myself

of the absence

of the silence

i cry into my knees

as i beg it to go away...

Beautiful emotions of longing when a loved one is away. You did a great job of reminding me how hard it can be.
