When you were little

on

When you were little

if you fell

they would ask you where it hurt

you would point to

your knees, you arm or an elbow

and they would make it better

 

but you noticed

as you get older

if you fall

they do not ask you where it hurts

 

you sit silently in your room

waiting for someone to ask you

where it hurts

pointing to your head and your heart

 

because that is where the pain

hurts the most

but nobody makes it better
