Love Whisper for my Pain

My body screams stop

every night,

and my skeleton crumbles

into place.

My joints chant out demands

and my muscles

only know resistance.

I try to communicate

with stillness and silence,

but the pain 

has a pulse that strums

my nerves into spasms and jumps.

I understand patience and deep breaths,

and I whisper my pain’s name

over and over

Hoping that she will listen.
