a rainbow of pain


a rainbow of pain is normal for me
i can hide it well so no one can see
a rainbow of pain can be dark and so lonley
it has griped me tight it knows it does own me
a rainbow of pain flows thru blood
the cuts are so deep the streets will flood
a rainbow of pain keeps me alive
without this rainbow i will not survive
we all have this rainbow but not all can use it
a rainbow of pain can cause you to lose it
a rainbow of pain is normal for me
the pain runs to deep theres no hope for me

    This pain you feel, do you love it or hate it? Like familiarity...something you can`t turn away from. You write so raw and on edge, it feels exciting to read.
    Keep writing, Mr. Johnson. (Report) Reply

    the poem is certainyl universal. the pain that everyone strives on to feel alive. i know i indulge in it, maybe more than i should. but i think that hope is relative to pain. like light and dark.. can't have one without the other.
    So i hope you find what you need to remind you of that.
    Nicely written, sir (Report) Reply

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
