The Taste of Pain

I didn’t know pain had a taste

Until it was in my mouth

Not sour like I thought it might be

Not bitter either

It was acrid


Permeating everything I ate

I was eating pain

I was sipping pain

Swallowing it down

Only for it to come back up

That intense pain

That pulls at the patience

And the nerves

And I can’t swallow it down far enough

To keep it from coming back up again
