Free – Verse Poem

Afternoon all,

Here is a free verse poem that I wrote about the emotion Pain.

Hope you enjoy.

Pain

What is pain but an emotion?

Pain

Unbearable, intolerable pain

Grief, despair and undying devotion

To a loved one no longer here

Pain

Unquiet pain

Silent pain

Broken into fragments

When all life’s colours abandon our reason

Are we then eternally grateful for the pain

Pain

The shield that guards us against our own emotions

A divider that conceals us from the bitter truth

Pain

The only reason why most of us are still fighting

For what have we all got to lose?
