Chest Pains

You bring me Hope

You bring me Joy

But you bring me Pain.

A Pain so great

It’s like an anvil

An immovable object

Taking its retirement

On my chest

You can’t see It

But I can definitely feel It

Weighing down on me

It’s so easy for You

To take off

But impossible

For me to

Lift It

My breath feels heavier

The weight pushing 

Down on my air

But You breath so easy

Naïve to the Pain

My Pain that You cause

Lift It
