What is pain

What is pain?

Does it sprout from the earth?

Can I pick it and carry it in bundles, place it in a glass

Does it make you laugh?

What is pain?

Does it whisper through the phone ‘I love you’

From a thousand miles away?

Has pain held your hand?

Has it wrapped you in a towel after a shower?

What is pain?

Is it the letter in the mail or the bills scattered on the floor

Could you fit it in a plastic bag and leave it by the door? 

What is pain?

Is pain the pit of your stomach or the middle of your heart?

If you had to guess what pain would be

Where would you start?
