But At Least

My heart pangs and hurts   

Like a million pieces of shrapnel splitting inside me

But at least it is able to ache


My eyes are red and swollen

Like a million bees have laid their stingers and this is the aftermath

But at least they are able to cry


My arms are tingly and falling asleep

Like a million pins and needles that never seem to fade

But at least they are able to wake


My head has a heartbeat that pumps fast

Like a million drums beating in unison

But at least it is able to calm


My feet are cold and clammy

Like they sat in an ice puddle for a million years and never dried out

But at least they will warm


All of these sensations bombarding me

Yet, I’m numb

    Thoroughly enjoyed
    When we can live with the least life has to offer
    We appreciate the good times more
    Hang in there
    The good times are in the post

      Thanks for the kind words Peto! 🙂
