The flip side of joy...can't seem to have one without the other. Any kind...5/7/5 it.

shadows cover all
the light that burned has gone out
I grope through the dark
When feeling our way
we grasp what's familiar
make sense of madness

Pain is a symptom
something amiss, just not right
listen and address

some pain has no cure
all we can do is endure
and pray for succor
Physical / mental
each form has its own impact
long for pain free times
Pain, raw and burning
our body sends the signals
danger, danger, stop

Maybe if this shirt
Is witty enough, someone
Will want to love me.
Now Quilty, we all know
it is not what's on the shirt
but what lies within
What lies within me
Is way too often ignored
Overshadowed by looks
someone does love you
although it's not of much help
I, and others, do

who you are shines bright
we're not all blinded by frills
some know true beauty
I just re-read this... thank you so much for the kind reminders!
What I am thinking
Can create physical pain.
Like what I have now.
