My Pain My Pleasure

my pain
you are the reason
for longing me
for officious life
defeating all fuss
and impassable moment.

My pain!
hugged me
for a long time
my all scabrous moment
death could not snatch me
following life without respite

My pain!
all grief of life
ecstasy of life.

my pleasure
for a little moment
like the evening star
came and gone
billion of stars
could not illuminte
hopeful sky of my universe.

    There is no pleasure without pain. At times pain itself is pleasure for some. Also pain is of two kinds one is painful pain and the other pleasant pain. Beautiful poem. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    Wow one of yor best in metaphor! I love to read n use grandiloquent terms like u did in poems. Both pain n pleasure r transient to me. (Report) Reply
