Learning to Love Myself Again

Sipping on this new attitude

I can’t help this feeling

that slowly moves through

the thin walls of my blood vessels

my body feels like its on fire.

I jerk from sensation that builds

under my left breast

gripping it so tightly

you’d think I’d hurt myself

But it’s the only thing I can do to ease the pain

Breathing causes muscles to contract

and pain reminds me of an old friend

before it sucks me into its good night.

  • When Pain Hasn’t Healed Yet
