Emotional Pain

Emotional pain does not strike immediately,

it does not wallop

upon instigation,

this pain often lays dormant,

hiding in your crevices,

as friends and activities distract,

the heartache creeps up your chest

as you lie in bed

alone in your room,

reviving the memories

of the smile you had

in that same spot

months ago,

it steals your breath for a moment

as you realize you will never hear her giggle again

-POE(MS)
