What’s Pain ?

I didn’t know pain until
I stared at myself in the mirror
and saw eyes full of sorrow,
eyes that were no longer smiling
but we’re now streaming with tears,
eyes that were puffy and red.
I didn’t know pain until
I begged myself to stay strong
and to hold back the tears
but realizing that I couldn’t,
That is pain.
