Pain for Pain

Pain for Pain

I pack your tears
in my broken
flesh
timidly healing
your heart with every slice

I understand now
what lonely feels
like with love’s back turned
against the wind

my physical could never match
emotional states pleading
for acknowledgement

but here is my attempt
as my blood drains
for your forgiveness
