This Suffering is My Own (first published on my blog July 2013)

The quiet is the greatest revenge

No words, no thoughts

Empty void to swallow someone whole

You try to take my suffering

As if you ever had the right

This pain is my own

Not yours to exploit

You have devoured me enough

Left me crumbs in the quiet

Collecting dust

I found pain and anger

My greatest friends

Want to place you in the quiet

Reduce your memory

No words, no thoughts

For who are you to take my pain

This suffering is my own

Not yours to exploit
