The aching and the hurt
A never ending pain
From dawn to dusk
Throughout the night
And at the start of each new day
Unfocused and cloudy of thought
Darkness invades where once was light
Wellness but a distant memory
Fractured she has become
With no escape in sight
Tears freely falling
They bring no relief
Nor wash away the pain
Weary from it all
She longs for peace
And clarity of mind
Praying for an end
To her fractured being
