    I welcome the pain as a necessary reprieve from the happiness,
    A much needed break from the insuffable joy I am sometimes plagued with.
    But since I know I must endure heaven to appreciate the burn of hell
    I will myself to wait out the intolerable sounds of painted smiles
    As the dribble out in gay piercing colorful laughs
    All the while knowing pain is on its way--
    To save me.
    The magnanimous spirt of urt kindly pauses for me,
    Clears my jecitc and chaotic life,
    And bathes me in pure agony.
    Stops the excruciating pleasure
    Darkens my mood until I forget the happiness was ever there.
    My tears praise the torture one by one
    While they extinguish the fire that once burned inside my heart,
    Until it is once again cold.
    and I greatfully wrap myself in the familar coolness of depression
    Home, once again.

    When depression weaves us into it's web of the familiar, it grabs hold, making joy foreign and offensive. This piece was the :bomb:!

    I always enjoy when a poet goes "there" with their writing to places typically not touched on
    because it shows that with the right words and the right delivery, anything can be spoken on
    and in cases such as this joint, the result is a painful bliss.
    I REALLY liked this sister, because you took a perspective most folk wouldnt touch with a 10 ft pole :)
    But you so accurately and POETICALLY crafted it that by the end it was done JUST right :read: :)

    thank you triniti424
    i think that's what poetry is for, to look at things differently and express it in a different way.
