Poetry - Pain Again

Pain is getting stronger and stronger,

The pain of being betrayed...

Pain of hatred,

Crossing paths,

Pain encompassing me wholly,

Like a million needles gone crazy...

I feel so betrayed,

I feel so out from the world,

My emotions are taking me places,

Where I do not want to go,

My heart is full o' pain...

My inner being is crying,

Frightened being, painful interior,

I feel so much out...

I want out,

Out from all pain,

Sometimes I believe oblivion,

Will take her turn with me,

Maybe for a better (or is it bitter???) turn,



Delaney, S.R.
