The Pain of It All©

Hands on fridge, legs apart

Taking likins like a trooper

Can’t scream out or more will follow

Back and bottom are aching

Welts itching

Neighbors whispering

They heard your screams

Won’t lift a finger to make them stop

You pray that some day it will all end

Someday comes and you don’t know why

Grateful nonetheless
