Here is a free verse poem that I wrote about the emotion Pain.
Hope you enjoy.
What is pain but an emotion?
Unbearable, intolerable pain
Grief, despair and undying devotion
To a loved one no longer here
Broken into fragments
When all life’s colours abandon our reason
Are we then eternally grateful for the pain
The shield that guards us against our own emotions
A divider that conceals us from the bitter truth
The only reason why most of us are still fighting
For what have we all got to lose?
