Inspired by Pain…
You’ve stolen so many people I know
People I love
Some I could never say goodbye to
You haunt us all, like the shadow we can never lose
The clutch in our hearts when we hear something
The butterflies in our stomach when we feel something
You haunt me too, like the caress of a familiar demon
The stroke of a thorny branch
The whispered sweet nothings of an abusive lover
You are there – forever threatening, forever haunting
When can we ever know respite from you?
Or is this fate? Is this God’s will? I think not.
I hope I never meet you because even I don’t know what I would do
Allow you to abuse me, your cure fuck me over or just forget you mean anything
What is life? Is that what you are sent to remind us of?
Suffering? Pain? Loss? Warped physiques, dreams and hopes?
Perhaps. Till I know the answer one day, the pain is soul wrenching…
