Pain

To heal I need you,
your rawness,
to feel you,
touch you,
hear you,
as you tear me apart
till the tears flow...

Your beauty lies in
that you remain
hidden
closeted
behind the layers
that no one else can
glimpse but me...

Only when
I venture into space,
the empty space
that you occupy
where I savor your feel
your fullness
and absorb you....

Not a friend
not an enemy
just my teacher
teaching me lessons
through challenges
that I have ignored
so far...

I go to bed
every night feeling
I have accepted you
just that bit
that little bit
And just when I catch
a glimpse of the healing light...

I see the shadows lurking ahead …..

Man, I just caught this one. I think you do a fine job examining pain imagery; I feel very close to that at this point; I'm working on a poem myself, but I wonder if I am worthy of such august company.
