"If you love life, don't waste time, for time is what life is
made up of."

-- Bruce Lee


For the first time in a long time,
The pain escapes through the corners of my eyes.
A switch is flipped; my body trembles; images blur,
And the intensity of the pain demolishes my control.

I don't want an "It'll be okay",
Save your sympathy for someone else.
No forced, fake "I understand"s,
Or someone to hold me together.
I want to revel in this deep abyss of hurt -
More real than any spoken word.

I wallow in the relentless, unmerciful sting
Invading every nerve ending in my body-
Indulge in the electrocution of my emotions.
I urge the agony to never end;
Wish the feeling was a chemical
I could inject into my veins at my discretion.

I beg it to take over my soul for the time being.
To make up for the times I feel nothing at all.

This is pretty much an overflow of the feelings that finally broke me down.

Worry is simply a misuse of the imagination.

sometimes it jsut feels better to wallow around in a pool of hurt.  makes you feel better latter, for some odd reason of another.

Ok. seriously, there aren't words to describe the feeling reading this poem gave me. It was like someone punched me in the stomach and stole my voicebox at the same time. You read this to me one time before. It's beautiful in its pain. You're a writer, Lovey, get it through your brain. Love everything by you!

I like the truth behind this poem. The not wanting that false sense of security that people try to thrust upon you. Awesome job, GangstaEyes

i really like how well you described everything in this poem. and my favorite part of it all would have to be the second stanza. i felt i could relate to that. :) keep writing because this was very good.
