OF COURSE I’M OK
One can easily hide one’s pain from others
Since generally they aren’t paying attention
One can hide one’s pain from oneself too
Temporarily at best – and only at a cost

Or should it be mistress? (At the risk of starting a fresh debate on the significance of labelling? 😉 )
(Just to let you know I’m following the threads on your posts.)
Hum pain the mistress. A thought.
