It hurts right here…deep down inside.

Poem by Louisette Toh

I know it hurts; I don’t know why, I don’t know how, it just won’t stop.
What did I do? I still don’t know, I cannot tell, I’m still in shock.
I’m I too dark? I’m I too shy? is it my fault I’m who I am?
I love myself, I know I do. Just let me cry, a few more tears.

It hurts right here…deep down inside. Down in my gut, that’s where it hurts.
Aching, tender, shooting pain. There’s still no blood, I wish there were.
Hot, burning, nagging pain; intense is not intense enough.
I know it hurts; I don’t know why, I don’t know how, it just won’t stop.

Please let me cry a few more tears…
