19 (who?)
I wonder, do they see?
This sadness inside of me
Does it scream out from my eyes;
Should they even be surprised?

When every time they say his name,
I feel this quiet aching pain
How could they notice the way I turn,
Shying away from the age old burn.

Trying to smile, to be happy- Whatnot,
Yet tiredly fighting the urge to be caught.
If I would scream and howl and shout,
Would they even turn about?

The memories that haunt me day and night
Are something I've given up trying to fight-
Indeed, I wish to remember his face...
And yet it's gone, it cannot be placed.

When everyone 'round me has forgotten the past,
Each time it is mentioned I try not to gasp.
I want to be free from memories' old snare
To look at the pain and find it not there.

For surely in hurting I am making a choice,
To stifle my cries, to silence my voice
In a strange tangled way this type of depression
Is making this pain a certain obsession.
I wrote this poem for #Heart-of-Poetry
There prompt was obsession, and I took a different twist on it.

I also have written this for my 100 themes project, under #7- Pain.

When writing this poem, I wondered at the pain I've been going through. Quietly hurting through memories and the future without him. And in writing this poem, as I got to the last two stanzas, I realized that in a way... Remembering and dwelling on the pain was a type of obsession.

I don't feel I put this idea into my poem very well, but I hope you understand what I was trying to convey.
