    Sometimes
    The idea of not breathing
    Is the soothing
    Reality of a painless existence

    The peaceful notion
    Of only taking in enough
    To sustain
    The non action of BE
    Which is actually
    The act of resistance

    In linguistics
    The power of a word
    Or words combined
    Actualize
    A dream
    Like Hughes deferred

    But to BE
    An emotion
    Described by a word
    Mis-understood
    As something other then
    An untouchable concept
    Like Pain is Love is absurd

    To test the
    Warmth of
    The flow of
    An endless ocean
    Of admiration
    Respect
    Honor
    And non-compromise

    Is the non coherent
    Pitter pat
    Or rat tat tat tat
    Of how a loving heart
    Skips beats in acceptance
    Of tears that run away from my eyes

    For my pain is indeed
    My cross to bear
    No matter your chosen
    Method of delivery

    My Love
    For pain
    I’m sure
    Is the intrigue that you feel
    Defining the lack
    Of your understanding
    Of me

    The space I put in between
    Is time to filter through
    The separation
    Of things that truly
    Don’t go together

    Like

    Real and fake

    Like

    Love and hate

    Like love and stormy weather

    Does a LADY choose to sing the blues

    When you take away things
    That were designed to last forever

    Like

    LOVE

    But pain is merely defined
    In the present moment
    That passes as quickly
    As its arrival

    Love is
    The “bible” of my survival

    Giving pain
    Reflects
    The karma of drama

    But

    In pre meditated
    Notions of giving pain
    There’s no gain

    Truly it’s the blessings
    Of a soul
    That remains TRU

    And for the pain you give
    I remain simple
    In saying
    I WILL
    Never do that to you

    And maybe that's why
    You just don’t know how I feel

    Because what you feel
    Is Love that is real

    And the pain
    The pain
    Well
    Real
    It is not
    Because
    There is no room for pain
    Within
    All the LOVE
    I feel for you
    In my heart

    Hello Mrs Lady...

    Pieces like this I enjoyed reading most. Flows that grab hold of your mind and wrap each word around it,
    and then sink down soul deep so you're sure to remember them.

    I like how you entitled it Pain with a ? and ended it the way you did.
    In short... I truly enjoyed it! Heavy!
