Pia Andersson


White pain


White pain
questioned me,
never my actions.
Allowed laughter,
but never joy.
Ate me up from within.
Leaving nothing,
not even my selfpity
to protect me.

White pain
reduced me,
robbed me,
of what was once mine.
Leaving me
with blank fingertips.

I realize,
that the road
I will take,
will change.
The map
will not be found
this time.

God,
let your love
shine through me.
Give me peace.
Lead me back
to myself again.

Let me be Yours
and let me be me.

    The expression white pain itself is very original.
    laughter without joy,
    blank fingertips.
    your conviction that it will change, and final prayer to God.
    it is very nice dear pia. God bless you. (Report) Reply

    You are so right..... The pain that leaves you numb.... Without hope.... When nothing can possibly be the same again.

    Yes, that pain is white. (Report) Reply

    Any pain blue or white is enough to make us ponder and recollect.... for without experiencing pain we can not learn that we are human who got varied emotions. Thanks for sharing, top mark. (Report) Reply

    Quite an excellent poem. It speaks of a love lost and frenzy of mind. A cry for love and togetherness. Well done. Milda (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sidney Lanier

Once, at night, in the manor wood
My Love and I long silent stood,
Amazed that any heavens could
Decree to part us, bitterly repining.
My Love, in aimless love and grief,
