GREENWOLFE 1962

Pain

I set myself a task today,
To write of pain in rhyme.
Of the love I lost so long ago,
Remembered for all time.

The pain is not forgotten
Around my broken heart.
For even if I love again,
It's chained around each part.

The pain that had been pleasure
Before she ran away,
Was changed in just an instant,
Like sand to solid clay.

I shivered and I cringed in pain,
My heart to cold hard clay.
To change me from the boy I was
And the man I'm not today.

The pain had soon consumed my life,
My dreams in darkness too.
My anger and my sorrow,
My hate for the world I knew.

It's only bitter that I taste
And only grey I see.
And when lovers warm each other still
It brings a chill to me.

Once I tried to release my chains
That held my love so true.
I actually found someone to give
A cold-chained loving to.

But alas! It ended as before
With a chain around each part.
And now my love lies chilled forever
At the bottom of a broken heart.

    Mission Accomplished, truly my friend...

    I browsed through your poetry just looking for something that others hadn't taken a real shining to or notice of that I might. Not surprising that there is not one of your pieces that hasn't truly touched its readers...

    Beautiful stuff my friend, even when it's about... Pain

    Be Well

    You achieved your goal of expressing pain in a rhyme in way that cannot be matched, a lovely write of the tragic ''rejected love''...thnx

    Alas my dear Greenwolfe... the lesson of acceptance. What pains you? Her absence or her rejection? The loss of her or the denial of you? Are the demons in your dreams hunting you or are you hunting them? I Like!
