pain is often
the cry
of discomfort
when there is
bodily damage

but pain is also
the silent cry
that hides
in a deep
dark place

the lurking anguish
that has
no shape
but writhes
like a snake

spewing venom
on every
happy thought
and digging
its fangs
into every
springing song,

it is the invisible
dark side
of the barren moon
whose visible identity
is further lost
without the presence
of the supporting

it is the separation
from its bretheren
of the just about
to bloom flower
that is plucked
from the garden
to add life
to lifeless ornate

it is also
the feeling
of the fallen flower
lying in the same garden
that is trampled upon
by callous footsteps
as eyes fall prey
to the newer ones,

pain is seeing
the one by one
dropping of dried leaves
from a tree
whose roots have
been cut by
the mushrooming
concrete foundations,

it is also
the painful parting
in an often
repeated dream
where she clutches hard
to his decided
departing hand,

and unwillingly opens
her beautiful eyes
to the morning rays
of a welcoming life
the leftover tears
to slowly run down
the contoured sides.

  1. Of everything I have read of yours Vidur this one well I truly wished it would never end! What you have is something I have no words for…saying you are a talented or gifted writer for me at least just does not seem to cover exactly what it is you have or are…it is something of wonder truly. ❀

    1. So happy to have had the opportunity to share whatever it is that seems to find words, here, with you Maureen! What bubbles within, I know….but am never sure whether it conveys the same ripples amongst the written words. Thank you for letting me know when it does. It somehow completes the circle for me. β˜ΊοΈπŸ’™
