It Hurts (Originally Untitled) – Written Friday 14th March 2006 (Aged 31)

It Hurts

it hurts
like my illness
it leaves me –
doubled up in pain

it hurts
and i know it is meant to
no tears change the answer
just let go
they are dying –
for me to respond
to somehow react
they know the way to achieve that –
is to distort fact

it hurts
and it must take so much hatred
for someone to do this
not just to me
but to themselves
