Act of pain

Pain is a strange thing
Full of lies, it will be
Painting stories of tragedy
you will learn to believe

Into the role, perfectly
Pushing at you, screaming
Crying. A disgusting mess of
Madness and grief

Sorry I let the poison of pain
Swallow me; I forgot to see
Every time I clawed at you,
You’ve only responded with love

(writteninstead)

Stay

Loneliness will dance around solemnly and then leave

Anger will sit around stubbornly and then leave

Pain will linger around a little longer, and leave

Like everything else, guilt will probably leave?

 

I only hope that when all has departed, you’d still be here

And there will be only you and I with all that space to love
