Spare The Rod - Poem by Tony Elsby (Poems of life and love)

Pain can be felt in so many ways,
Through shattered bones and troubled days,
But the pain of lost love,
As if not enough
Can’t be helped
By whipping ourselves

    I like this poem because it is true of my experience of lost love and the pain that comes with it. I often said I would rather break a leg or arm than to suffer from a broken heart. For me it takes a much longer time to heal from a broken heart than from a broken body part! (Report) Reply
