the ratio of pain

vega_bloodTiesSepia#1

 

 

IN A CRISIS OF THE HUMAN SOUL

 

WHERE TORMENT LIVES AND TAKES ITS TOLL…

 

THE POETS CAN ARTICULATE THIS PAIN.

 

 

THEY’LL PONTIFICATE A DIATRIBE

 

AND SO ELOQUENTLY THEY’LL DESCRIBE

 

THE EXCLUSIVE TORMENT

 

THEY RELUCTANTLY DISTAIN.

 

 

THE MISERY THEY CELEBRATE

 

GIVES THEM CAUSE TO ILLUSTRATE

 

THE PRIVATE TORTURE THEY SO WILLINGLY SUSTAIN.

 

 

BUT ALL THE WHILE ANOTHER SOUL

 

WILL FEEL THE TORMENT TAKE ITS TOLL

 

BUT SHARE NO GENIUS TALENT TO EXPLAIN.

 

 

ALL HE KNOWS IS THAT HE’S ALONE

 

WITH NAGGING SORROW IN HIS BONE

 

ENDURING, BUT REFUSING TO COMPLAIN.

 

 

CONSUMED BY HEARTACHE AND DISTRESS

 

AND THE INABILITY TO EXPRESS

 

THE SIMPLEST OF WORDS TO EASE HIS PAIN.

 

 

IT’S NOW THAT THE POETS’ WORDS CAN HEAL

 

WHAT HE EXPRESSES, OTHERS FEEL

 

AND HIS EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS TO TORMENT,

 

PURELY VAIN.

 

 

THE ABILITY TO EXPRESS WHAT’S REAL

 

IS A GIFT TO SHARE, SO OTHERS HEAL

 

AND SO THE EGO MUST RENOUNCE THE CLAIM.

 

 

THE FEELINGS THAT SOME  REVEAL,

 

THAT OTHERS FEEL

 

BUT  CONCEAL…

 

IN DEEPEST TRUTH… THE PAIN IS ALL THE SAME.
