A Metaphor For Pain

November 14, 2008
By Chris Azzara, Huntington Station, NY

I know I shouldn't feel this way.
It's really all over.
But I can't help but notice
the way your hands are clasped together.
It's all so wrong!
A disgusting entanglement.
If only you would've let me teach you the proper way
to hold someone else's hand
so tenderly.
I'm avoiding you.
The both of you.
Because when i see your hands together,
I can't help but realize that,
it's really all over.
