Pain - Poem by Samantha Williams

It comes without warning.
It comes without fear.
Lives ruined by its secrets,
Still hiding the tears.

We fight to get even,
We start our own war.
Now nothing is sacred,
We've nothing to fear.

It brings us lost moments
Of love and sweet joy.
Though nothing but sorrow
And grief come to soar.

It stops our heart beating,
We can't scream or cry.
Salvation is there if
We'd just close our eyes.

Still fighting our way,
Through the darkest of nights,
Our hearts so reposed,
Yet feeling uptight.

It hurts our whole body,
We can't breathe when it's near.
Our world of nothing,
With nowhere to heal.

Salvation still clinging,
To the last shred of hope.
We're lost in damnation
With pitty and smoke.

The mirror we're all using,
Has nothing to say.
It only shows,
Our true way.

If it comes without warning,
And comes without fear,
Why not fight without ceasing
And fight without fear?

It brings us destruction.
It brings us no help.
Salvation still clinging,
To that one last hope.

If we'd just close our eyes,
Then we'd know what to do.
If we'd just close our eyes,
Then we'd see that last hope.
