Can I advance the pain?
For I know it will eventually happen...
I tried... I did
I cried at the mere thought of it
Eventually it happens...
Why is it so painful still?
Can't breath cause of pain... hardly can
It doubles each time.. multiplies even
The thought, the reality, the impact, the intensity
Those advanced tears weren't able to prepare me
From these excruciating pain...
When I advanced, it ended
This too shall end,
so I thought... again...
Keep me afloat
keep me breathing
Let me hold on..
