Pain

Makes you feel real again

instead of being numb

brings you back for your next session to begin

and be real for a second

understanding our nature

but with all this dehumanization

the pain is lessened

and we’ve become zombies I’m guessin

but from great pain comes great pleasure

that I will hold gold forever

and do better

for whatever

comes my way

I make the most out of my day

and gain

standing in the rain

or sitting on a train

my time’s too precious to see it wane

from beginning to end

I’ll love every bit I can

my cure to recommend

enjoy your friend

that becomes a trend

and saves you from becoming dead

inside

where many have died

and are on the wrong side

Like a corpse bride

can’t enjoy the ride

just lied

and living in a body that’s dried

no flow

no go

be whole in your temple

and soul

    According to Dickinson it comes before stupor.
    Faulkner (Wild Palms) said “Between pain and nothing I’ll take pain.”

    I like that. The nothing is the worst.

    i think i’d go for nothing rather than a toothache… ;)

    existence is painful, yet man manages to turn his peripheral senses -procured for this purpose – away from the central coral consciousness to more peripheral consciousness and sensations . a painful contact manages to get to the surface every now and then giving an alternative to the devouring nothingness

      Very True and well stated. I guess it takes both pain and nothing to be real.
