Suffering

Posted on

The old masters knew it well,

andblind to Icarus

and the fall

It fails to kill the soul

prolonging life, extending life

 

And yet

we revel in it

pleasure it

feed off our own misery

Suffering nurtures and the killing

our hearts

 

I llong for suffering

to quickly kill me

to end the pointless call

of life

Suffering, they knew it well
