Image for the poem Pain


I can FEEL it
it rips at the walls around my heart
desperate to be let in
so it can tear me apart

it claws at the doors of my mind
screaming its battle cries
determined to get in
it tries and tries and tries

not only my pain
but the pain of a thousand different souls
each of them furtively
trying to become whole

everywhere I go I feel it
like a presence in the air
pain so great and sorrowful
it brings one to despair

I feel it in the street and
I feel it in the store
I only wish I didn't have to
feel it anymore...

not one but a thousand
my demons, your demons and everyone's
