Very well said! An excellent and captivating poem! As I was reading it I thought you were possibling referring to memory of a bad experience you might have had, or something along that line, and then to see that is is chronic pain you were referring to. It all fits doesn't it! Chronic Pain is like a super bad memory, that just won't go away, as you so eloquently put it in your poem!
