Weekend Writing Warriors/8Sunday
Excerpt from Into The Night
“It is the pain you cannot feel that hurts the most.
Pain that stings, that burns, that afflicts the flesh is always fleeting and treatable.
We can itch it, rub it, cure it, relieve ourselves of it.
But there is one pain you cannot itch, that you cannot rub, cannot cure.
It is the pain in which only time and endurance heals, the pain in which only humans can inflict on each other…
And that is pain of the heart.
It does not itch, it does not burn, it does not afflict your flesh, nor does it demand you to physically feel it.
But indeed, it is the pain you cannot feel that hurts the most.”
