Agony

Deep inside there is an ache
Ensconced behind bone and muscle
Screaming out to be heard
Pleading to be seen
Embittered by the distance
Relief nowhere to be found
Attempts are made to lance the wound
To break it open so healing can begin
Instead the anguish infiltrates another
Organ that begins to wither in
Need of air, love, faith but smothered.
