Cut

If I cut myself now, would you feel the pain? No! I’d do it though — if it got your attention.

There are no pills for heartache, no bandages to heal an invisible gaping wound. The only option left then is ‘time’, and that doesn’t heal very fast and sometimes, it doesn’t heal at all.

It’s frightening to watch history repeat itself. The tear in the generations remains a bleeding wound despite the attempted repairs, so it’s better to focus the pain elsewhere.

Besides, you can’t understand my pain since we haven’t spoken to each other in such a long time.

  1. I got done with this and thought about God a little bit. Imagine you named this ‘prayer’ instead and read it again – with that mindset, this became a powerful statement about abandonment, faith, and the relationship with a deity.
