Chronic Pain Poetry

edited 06/11/2012 - 9:02 AM in Chronic Pain
Here is a poem I wrote, on a particularly bad evening...

The Pain envelopes me
Consuming my Body
I let out a cry within
But my face remains the same
The world will never know..

I have been Broken
I have been Beaten
I once only saw the Beauty in the World
Now I see its Cruelty

Beautiful memories of The Past
Now come to Haunt Me
Only reminding me of what I Have Lost

Joy, Happiness, Contentness
Will I ever find it here again?
Or is it now only on the Other Side

The Drugs battle what I cannot
Morphine vs. Pain
My Body is the Battlefield
My Sanity the Casualty

There is no escape
Forever stuck in a Torture Prison of Flesh
The Pain now comforts me
A feeling I call Home


and just so you know I am not suicidal or chronicly depressed or anything. This poem actually helped me relieve the feelings they evoke. Also I am a Metalhead, so I have always had a thing for the dark stuff :)


I have other poems, most not related to pain, but if you want to see them ill be glad to share on another site.
