Ooo-Ooo It Pains


Eyes stop,
When one sees something unusual.
And eyes pop.
Jaws drop...
In disbelief.

Eyes stop to pop.
And jaws are then dropped,
When someone known loved...
Is seen disceiving.

And then to hear denying lies.
With attempt behind them to hide...
What a lover knows and feels inside!

Oh, it pains.
Ooo-ooo it pains.
A flashing of dashing shared bodies under sheets.
A loving with another who is seen daring to cheat!
Oh, this pains.
Ooo-ooo it pains.

And there it is in public to view,
A lover with another...
Kissing and hugging to be grinding hips too?
Ooooo this pains.

Eyes stop,
When one sees something unusual.
And eyes pop.
Jaws drop...
In disbelief.
And...
Then to hear those denying lies,
To contradict that feeling...
What has been witnessed without spying,
To be felt inside.
Ooo-ooo it pains.

And there it is in public to view,
A lover with another...
Kissing and a hugging to be grinding hips too?
To believe that a togetherness is forever heaven sent.
And a commitment made to stay that way,
Had no intention meant to one day betray?
Ooo-ooo it pains and the pain remains.
Oh, it pains and it stays the same unchanged.
It pains

Ooo-ooo it pains,
And the thought of it remains the same.
Unchanged.
And the thought of it stays maintained,
With a sustained pain that will never change.

Ooo-ooo it pains,
And the thought of it remains the same.
Unchanged.
And the thought of it stays maintained,
With a sustained pain that will never change.

A lover with another and it isn't undercover,
It pains!
And the thought of it remains the same.
Unchanged.
And the thought of it stays maintained,
With a sustained pain that will never change.
It pains.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
