TRANSLATE MY PAIN

If I could translate my pain into color
It would be black
Because all I see is deep darkness
A darkness black in color
If I could translate my pain into food
It would be pizza
Because it is round with no end in sight
I see no end to my pain
If I could translate my pain into a season
It would be winter
Because it is cold exactly how my heart is
A frozen mass of cold ice
If I could translate my pain into song
It would be the blues
Because my soul is sad lonely broken and dull
Sounds of a lonely guitar
If I could translate my pain into a number
It would be five
Because that is when you came into this world, then left
Five reasons to have pain
If I could translate my pain into color
It would be orange
Because it is fiery and bold and overwhelming
What I feel most days
If I could translate my pain into weather
It would be hurricane
Because my emotions are hazardous unpredictable
Wild winds causing chaos
If I could translate my pain into word
It would be f@#*
Because cursing is all I want to do every single day
Simple words are too kind
If I could translate my pain into emotions
It would be fire
Because my heart is burning with loss and more pain
Fire that cannot be quenched
If I could translate my pain into a wish
It would be to have you in my arms
Because living without you baby
Is causing my soul to perish
Translate my pain
Maybe then I can understand it
And not be so lost in this pain

  1. Sorry for your pain. Beautifully written though. I could feel your deep pain right with you. Nice job. I hope your pain will decrease very soon. Everyone’s pain comes for different reasons but I could completely relate to feeling this kind of deep dark raw pain. Hugs and more hugs and many blessings to you always.

      1. I have read the poem you wrote, it is exactly what I feel most times, so many unanswered questions that haunt your mind. It was comforting to know I am not alone in this grieving process. Thanks for sharing it😊

  2. Beautifully written, descriptive, and relatable. Now that you’ve identified this pain, how can we start the healing process. Healing is necessary. Keep writing, sharing your emotions. This is therapeutic to see, to know that we aren’t the only ones hurting. We can all get to the healing process just knowing people can make it through! Stay encouraged.
