What is this pain?

What is this pain?
A persistent dull ache
gnawing at my heart
Not too strong to cry out
yet not that mild to ignore
What is this pain?
A feeling of worthlessness
of knowing you can do more
But somehow not able to
go beyond that knowledge
What is this pain?
A sense of loneliness
growing out of mundane routine
Of spending each day no different from
the previous one – the same old story
What is this pain?
A growing annoying noise of dissent
welling up inside of me
Like the gathering of dark pregnant clouds
forecasting the coming of a storm
What is this pain?
