Poem: Daily

My feet are heavy

Weighted and dragging

Knees asking, begging

For unlooked for relief

The anchors on my feet

Tugging on a line

Connected to the heart

Every footfall

Thudding in my soul

Weary, craving rest

Yet none is offered

No signs of respite

Either near or far

Shoulders sagging

Pushed down by thoughts

Too many to contain

Body, mind, and soul

A life in agony

Created within my mind

But, isn’t that the point

Phantom pain

Emerging in reality

Undeniable, inescapable

Misery made flesh

Stretching through existence

Seeping into the marrow

No succor

No salvation


Unwashed even by tears
