Daily Prompt – Suffer

Life hides deep behind the buffer

Of all that comes to make us suffer

In that corner of welled tears

In the numbered days of years

That pass as we learn not to cry

Or perhaps we’ve just run dry

Persisting for just one more day

As we push on to make our way

Pretending this is what makes us strong

When really we could not be more wrong

Gaining strength from what we regret

But casually tell ourselves that we’ll forget

The passage of time does not cure all

We simply accept that we’ve taken this fall
