Chronic Pain Poem

So I'm no good at poetry except acrostic poems and I haven't posted in a while so I thought I'd use my painsomnia to do a post on pain.

C is for crying, because nothing is easing the pain
H is for hurting, not just physically, but emotionally and socially too
R is right, wondering what the right thing is to do
O is for ongoing, because that is what chronic means
N is for no sleep, because it's hard to get comfy
I is for invisible, because my pain can't be seen
C is for cost, the cost of living in permanent pain

P is for pause, your life lived on pause because of the pain
A is for all over, when every part of your body hurts
I is for ignorance, when people don't understand
N is for never-ending, when will this pain end?
