Phrased Phases

After a Short Break

Pain is a burrow 
that digs itself
into the crevices of your mind
deeper and deeper.

Each shovel 
striking deep 
into fresh organic mind,
harder than it's predecessors.

They never stop digging,
these madenning shoveliers.
They only pause, 
and like all pauses before
this too is temporary,
waiting to strike again 
after a short break.
