The Thing That Hurts Most by William Taylor Jr.

And there’s that big dumb feeling
inside you that you can’t
quite find a reason for

everything so heavy
every movement
strained

you breathe in the late
afternoon sky

and breathe out
the loneliness of  time

all the faces and the voices
have nothing to do with you

and the thing that hurts most
is holding on to it all

when you dearly want
to let go, to dissolve
the anchors and the chains
of your being

and evaporate
into the divine forgetfulness
of everything.
