I had to stop in and reaf this again- -it is that special kind of poem that calls to the reader to read it again even if we are on our way to read another poem by you. This is fantastic writing!

A great poem, and a very insightful observation...Pain is an entity, an agency....and sometimes it calls so loudly that we have no choice but to hear. A wonderful poem.

Yes, we say that probably at the times we cannot fix it- -we cannot cure the cancer- -we cannot stop the car from hitting the child- -we cannot stop foreign countries from going to war- - -we cannot stop love from dying and leaving.... But how we would like not to hear what tears us up from limb to limb when pain is a voice. The is a great piece of writing.10++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ and a spot on my fav list

Beautiful! Like a stroke of thunder mind you shot the ground with sharp idea. As well as you may need, it does exist..i may say we have choices to pick Pain maybe a voice... and it also part of an illusion... future, we avoiding it It may appear as dark but if we really know the bright side is hidden behind its ugliness To stay in ugliness or we accept what it is then dare ourselves to find the meaning its hide Beautiful thought Ali, i really enjoyed this words from your mind!

A succinct gem of a piece. Yes, how can we not feel pain when it's palpable. When it's sensory. We might have choices in life in certain matters, but in the matter of pain, hardly a choice. Can't help feeling it.10
