A World Of Pain

A World Of Pain

1 min 230 1 min 230

Look around you

People wrapped in clutches of pain

Tears perch on eyelid rims

Blood dries feebly on rickety walls

Stains the soft corner of a plum lip

alike.

Screams grate against bolted windows

And fade at the threshold

of veneered houses.

And I know you think about them at night

Heart pining, soul stirring

Crippled under this weight

of a world of pain

And to this I say

Pain may dwell in stubborn shadows

But darling,

Slip your fingers in mine

Let me rain kisses over your wounds

For, caged in your weathered bones

is a warrior soul, fistfuls of sun

Let's spread the warmth, love

In this fight, you are never alone.
