Bitter-sweet Torment

Bitter sweet Torment short poem

Photo by DeeAshley

Pain, why must you stay?
I thought you would leave,
In a mere day.

Pain, I despise you,
You consume my emotions,
As stubborn as glue.

Pain, we have known each other,
For quite sometime,
If I was a dim-lit street,
You would be the grime.

Pain, you have been there,
at every gut-wrenching moment,
And I have been waiting,
For your bitter-sweet descent.

Pain, I think it’s time we parted ways,
But you are like a snake,
Coiling around my every emotion,
You are the only thing,
That has shown me devotion.

Pain, truthfully I don’t want you to go,
I’ve grown a-kin to you,
Like an old foe,
You have shaped me into who I am,
For that I am grateful,
You are the shepherd, and I the lamb.

Torment short poem

Slowly, slowly as the storm brews Dark Images, thoughts and words of abuse Tunnelling, focusing, blurred then black Is that yet another knife in my back? Raging inside yet aware, not awake Cornered and shaken, I will not let them

The Torment short poem

Much of withstanding endurance reflects strain Practically on outer edge for challenge to sustain Intricate arduous trudge sans time out for recess Blend though near perfect but outcome can’t assess Peaks few, abyss aplenty and many a shifty bend None
