Amputee

There was pain

Before this.

Great and terrible pain

Now gone.

Like a limb removed,

A need,

A necessity,

For life.

That pain hurt

And angered me;

It never let me alone.

Now gone.

Learning to live

Again.

Learning to be

Myself Once more.

But I still feel

The phantom pains,

The limb

That is there

But gone.

A need for this

Life I have here.

And I miss it

That part of me.

For walking

This journey.

That pain.

I won’t take it back

Pain broke

My loyalty.

I wait

And wait

For the heel to be Healed

For the limb to be restored

To this body

My own.
