the pain remains

sometimes the body wakes the mind
at three a.m., demanding that they
do something about the pain
so they can both go back to sleep

seconds crawl, as though reluctant
to become minutes
yet suddenly hours creep up
before they have a chance to rest

dawn breaks but the pain remains,
so they blame each other
for not being strong enough
