In Your Mind

He told me " the pain is all in your mind" So I hit him in the head and said "it's in yours now too" Deep breaths and bitten lips as I try to walk away one more pill to dull the pain how long can suffering stay opiate receptors relaxed there's a soothing in the air calm has flanked hostility and lies within the fear barren paths of crisis crossed where love has up and gone filing out in feeble steps no one's won or lost

The humor in this helps to swallow it a little better. Beyond that, mental abuse is worse that physical. In most cases. Bruises can heal, yet the heart and mind never forget. ~ Brandy

If this is you, may find relief. I hate it when someone says it is in your head. grrr... Not all can be like my husband.. when he had his 1st heart attack he felt no pain ... just nausea and fatigue.
