Pain

6 Jan

I wrote this piece in the weeks after mum’s death in 2009

Pain

Catches you unawares
Catches you at unexpected times
Sneaks up
Jumps out
A place
A comment
A smell
Pain
The ache of the hurt
The punch in the guts
The watering of the eye
Pain
A companion behind, before, around
No quick fix,
No words that fully explain
A process,
A journey.
For how long?
