Comfort In Pain - Poem by Scarlet .....

I was lost in numbness for years
I was running from pain
but then I became trapped in the freezing darkness
where I was constantly numb
I’d rather feel pain than nothing at all
pain with out reason
pain without cause
pain without love
it was all better then being numb
I am sick of feeling numb
I was lost in a world of numbness
show me a world I understand
pain is the only thing I know now
I can no longer feel anything but pain
this life is filled with pain
I now find comfort in pain
it is the only thing I can rely on
the only thing I can count on
it’s the one thing I understand
it is all I have
all I feel
for my life is filled with pain
pain is all there is left
when happiness doesn’t work

    I know what its like to be totally and absolutely numb, and I also know that pain is the anchor stopping me from being a zombie. Your poem expresses the words that I have felt for a long time now. Thank you for writing comfort in pain. (Report) Reply
