Beauty in Pain

I used to think

That pain was crippling

That death was debilitating

That to lose a friend was hopelessmess

woops… hopelessness

 

I’ve come to find

If I start numbing

The picture starts pixilating

And I think lonely is fornever

woops… forever

 

But now I see

I just need something

a field of daisies, breathtaking

Because just one is death-defining

many… death-defying

 

Contrast may be

Autumn breeze, or spring

Painting leaves with vivid feeling

Far be it from me to damp heart stings

my heart… sings

 

Grainy
