Pan of Pain


The anger is a boil on my thought
You in so much and many words
Ran the bases before I called you out.

You have to pretend now to win
All your wins are actually losses.

When it first was an actualization
I watched love slowly slip away
The so far turned to the surely near

In the end - yeah there was one -
All the boiling water left a crust
around the pan of pain
