Poetry: ..dark torture..

By Monica C. Voskamp


Run. Run. You can run,

But the pain will still find you.


Numb. Numb. You can numb,

But the pain is still inside you.


Deny. Deny. Oh girl, you can deny,

But darling, the truth is

Your pain is very much alive.


Cry-yes, you will cry

It’s just part of the undoing.


Scream- yes, you will scream

As the wound is opened

And there is probing.


Regret. Regret. But you will not,


You will not regret opening

The whole of your soul.


You will not regret saying:

Love, meet me right here.

Meet me in this dark abyss,

This dark torture named


Always hope. Always believe. Always love. ❤
