pain
like water
fills up
the ocean
and the thimble

pain
like water
takes the shape of
every mould
the heart makes
for itself.

pain
like water
makes up
60% of
me.

Pain, unlike water, has bitter taste. :)

Pain like water
freezes over
when life turn cold

Pain like water
gushes out
from eyes when sore

and finally

Pain like water
mixes well
with my evening scotch :)

hi chiya: i LOVE when u take a metaphor and develop it... ur one line kind of turns the post on its head, doesnt it :-) lovely.

hi richa: :-) and an even bitter after taste...

hi HT: as usual, YOU EXCEL YOURSELF. how do u develop these metaphors better than i can imagine? the last one is just too good.

Pain does not make up 60% of you...you think pain makes up 60% of you!!

Thoughts are you best friends...thoughts are your worst enemy. They can take you from a sunlit day to a rainy night within a moment.

Feeds on itself,

gosh you are a fine poet....

i know the pain you speak of. i've carried it too, for too long. 60%. i think that means change is calling you; that 40% knows better.

your comments here are great. i'm glad i've come by.
