suffering – April PAD Challenge Day 10

suffering

questions asked
no answer to give
cradling the emptiness
of a life unlived
what should be joy
now turns to sorrow
can hardly face
another tomorrow
familiar embrace
feels like spindles
love long lost
want to rekindle
how to step out
a life to regain
is it worth
letting go of this pain?

I am participating in the April Poem-a-Day (PAD) challenge from Writer’s Digest. My goal is not to inundate you with posts, but to provide a forum for feedback if you want to challenge me to push myself further in my writing.

For today’s prompt, write a suffering poem. A person or animal in the poem could be suffering. The poem itself could be suffering.
