Push out the Pain- a Poem about Trying to Forget
Push out the Pain
Her mind screaming,
she runs out into the night air,
clad only in a scant gown.
Running in bare feet,
she stumbles and falls to the pavement
and lies there for a moment.
But only for a moment
as she is driven by clamoring echoes
she thought were long forgotten.
She pushes, and scratches,
with raw fingers and bleeding nails,
to get to her feet.
Dealing with Emotional Pain
Her brain pulsating,
she rushes on into the darkness,
not feeling the blood on her legs.
Pushing onward in desperate attempt
her body takes over to release
the fear that her mind cannot.
