Poem

Darkness came...and the pain followed.
Or..
Was it pain came... and darkness followed?

I can't remember the the difference anymore
Pain
Is always here

The dark
Always follows

Chummy bedfellows to say the least...oh? I Can say more
But to what purpose?

Pain is here.
Here is darkness.
Is pain the darkness I fear?
Is it fear of the darkness that causes pain.
Or is it simply I fear the dark and the pain that follows.

What do I fear small..."I

Is it pain
Fear of pain
The pain of fear

The physical
The mental
The emotional..pain?

They..are all different
Of a family of a specie...

Yet all the same
Different and the same.

Physical..aversion tactics
Avoidance and diversion
I..bargan

Mental, a deeper cut
Fatigue has me weakened
And I think
Pain..and,I fear

Emotional
My deepest cut of all
I know I will have,and be in pain

Mental
I think
Therefore I know pain will come
Therefore..I may fear

Emotional
I know the pain is coming
I know I will be in pain until .."that" hours ending
I know that I must finally,
Endlessly
Endure the pain.

Yet one solace
Fear
I
Do not fear.

Since I know pain and what part,what "end" it serves..do you understand...

Pain,simply is
And is not

What it is
What is it
What isn't
What can
What cannot be
What..
Will not be...

Spiney
There is pain
Don't add to it by fearing it
Learn what and who the beast is at your door.
Light your rooms
There is no beast that lives in light

Physical
Mental
Emotional
All tied
All bound

Yet separate
Study what hurts you

Why...will lead to which part
When...will lead to why
Where... will lead to the source

Carry on Spiney

    Not Going to Die

    Pulse

    In my ears

    Out of control

    In sync with

    Breaths

    Fast and

    Painful, each

    Bringing a new stab of

    Pain

    Hot, blinding

    Overwhelming everything

    I am

    Afraid

    I am alone

    No one can

    Hear my

    Screams

    Echo off the

    Walls and in

    My ears

    I am

    Paralyzed

    Unable to move

    Get up

    Find help

    I am slowly

    Dying

    From something

    I cannot

    Name

    What is happening

    To me

    I am only

    Terrified

    That I will

    Not die from

    This fresh Hell

    I cry out

    To the

    Blinding lights in

    My eyes

    Whispering

    Sobbing

    "I'm too young

    To die"

    I have read both of these several times on and off all day.
    It always happens, always, just when I need it, William. 
    Kieran, I've seen me in your poem but didn't have the words, or maybe the strength.

    Beautiful poems - sure on the dark side.   But we need to hear not only the beautiful calming poems, but ones that bite with the some times darker side of truth.   William, I know has been our poet here on Spine-Health since around 2008.   Now, we are fortunate to have another gifted writer in Kieran

    For me,  it was pain came... and darkness followed. Its hard to live outside the darkness when  the light has nothing to give you. To stay within the poem. I do come into the light. But it is the physical, mental and emotional issues that bring me back.
