Emotionally Cripple


It always hurts

This old familiar pain     

It never goes away   

And never does it wane


But it does grow

More and worse each day

Nothing I can do or say

Will ever make it go away


I can feel it every second

The ache in my heart and soul

It’s hard to do anything

When your heart is all but whole


I feel so broken and battered

I just can’t take it any more

Emotionally I am cripple

The pain runs to my core


Yet if I can hold it together

For just one more day

Maybe you’ll still love me

Maybe you’ll stay

This is another one about Steve. About my pain and living with it, with him.

I know you do. As do many others. Thats why I am posting all of my old poetry, and my new stuff as it develops. Yet, I thank you.

Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before. - Steven Wright
