I Feel

pain so intense
it travels to the core of my soul
and boils the emotions there
into a stew of confusion, doubt, and worry

as the body suffers
the psyche shrivels

a once-great mind
now coddled by children

a fearsome warrior
now cries to those she once saved

knowing smiles from both sides mask the naked truth

the way forward is blocked by living nightmares and fear
and there is no way back
