Never talk
About the pain you feel
Talking about it
Only makes it seem
More real
It’s just a little nick
And then another
Each one exacerbating
Every other.
Each hurt compounded
But every pain denied
still hurts
It’s just you’re only bleeding
inside

for dverse Quadrille prompt of 9/9/19, and
#8 in 30 Poems for September
