This Particular Hurt

This is transient, remember.
It’s gonna go away
like it always does
every single time
you feel this way.
The sharp hurt,
the dull ache
it all disappears eventually
dispersed into disarray.

You may even see value
in taking pleasure in this pain
as it won’t be with you for very long.
It may well be missed
before you know it.

Don’t worry, though.
It’ll be back again
soon after.

It is a chronic condition you have
with these particular emotions.
It comes and goes
but it always returns
and always goes away again afterwards.
