Pain is the visitor
who refuses to leave.
she lingers around,
stretches her legs on the sofa
of my heart,
and turns the TV volume up
so no one can hear me scream.

Pain scratches my walls
She wants all my guests
to know she was here.

Pain hides my house keys,
She says if I try to leave, she’ll burn the house down.
So I sit with her and tell her stories.
She keeps interrupting me
until I give in.
She takes the lead,
And i become an extra in my own movie.

pain is the visitor
I’m learning how to send away
without seeming too rude.

  1. Pain is indeed that visitor we shouldn’t let stay beyond their welcome lest they start intruding in spaces they are not wanted…beautiful deep Piece Lee😘
