“Aches and Pains” (Poetry)

amelia phoenix desertsong

Oh, these Aches and Pains
Anguish takes the reins
Last bits of light feign
And the darkness reigns

No longer can see the marks
The Devil has left upon 
My dearest friend, seen the way
She met her assured end

Still I sit here, paralyzed,
Now by kid shows, mesmerized
Aging parents are surprised
Seeing me suddenly digressed

Time to take me to 
Another shrink session
But when they try to then
They face strange aggression

This sadness is a 
Lethal viral infection
Bred consistently by 
Hate’s heartless rejections

Objections sent me 
In random directions
Still, I can’t help but
Now laugh in reflections

(2002 / 2018)

Writing words, spreading love, Amelia Desertsong primarily writes creative nonfiction articles, as well as dabbling in baseball, Pokemon, Magic the Gathering, and whatever else tickles her fancy.
