Pain, I succumb to it


Pain ain’t killing me

I only succumb to it

Let it drown me in its lustful tears

Tears wash over my being,

My most vile and reckless corners,

 My most adrift and floating corners,

The spots which were once delusionally alive,

Are now losing their glossiness,

Coming out of reverie to face the hollowness,

Eerie truths beckon me,

Teaching me that truth lies in nothingness

It lies in the omnipresent yet unfound vacuum,

Pain reins me towards that Vacuum

Manuscripts drenched in the stench of our sanctimonious thoughts,

Shredding these manuscripts, I float into the vacuum

It is a universe like none other, a light spirals around me

And I drink my tears, to quench my thirst as I awaken to the light

To find it to be a black hole, where zillions of tear drops are afloat, 

They lay waiting to be absorbed by their owners, to fuel them to rise above themselves

I see my reflection in those drops, and I look beyond my eyes

I find all that was scattered and broken seem to come together

To light the fire within, to hand me the quill to script my own perceptive truths

To find my own compass,

Pain at last awakens my voracious desire to live

It makes me whole, it my makes me soar to find myself

I succumb to it, only to find my bliss while I drown and burn in it.

  1. Yet pain as much as it is something we do not touch, it’s still our guide isn’t it?

    uhm if I may and if you don’t mind, could you send me an email to ? I have a question 🙂


  2. Beautiful piece.
