pain that doesn't end

there's no metaphor in me
no irony or pathos
no poetry

just a stark pain
running down my arm
into my rib cage

there's no singing
no christmas
no holiday cheer

just a wish that my
heart would stop
knocking at my breast bone

it's simple:
when pain does not end
and you know it never will

what reasons can be given
for pushing through the heartbreak
of life on earth?

i've gone through them all
over and over in my head
but i'm still left hopeless

for sickness and pain
do not have an up side
beyond the cliché

and nobody knows
what it takes to keep doing it
alone in your room
