Floats in its own universe of pain.
People thought I couldn’t,
Hurt as much as I did,
But feelings don’t follow
A spreadsheet of rules.
Now that I know,
I never assume
What anyone else feels
Or how long it might take
Their heart to heal.
[Please note that the song I’ve chosen to go with my poem is about the emotional content, not necessarily the accuracy of the words themselves.]
