Reflection of the Hurt

By Sandra Widner Burch

Why am I a reflection of the hurt
Reflecting the depth of the pain
Revisiting the nightmare again and again
Suffering that I barely can sustain
Witnessing the agony in vain
Embracing chaos too profound to chart
Obsessing each night I come to you
Devouring you; your bitterness
Sharing the ordeal in some small way
