Pain I seem to know it all too well Itís been a part of me for quite some time Itís like a shadow No matter how hard I try to get away from it It is always right there following me I could keep on living But whatís the point Iíve got this pain Always in my life Seems like a stalker No matter how much you try to hide It always finds you Emotional and physical pain Tearing me apart Tearing me to shreds Just like a lion does to a deer Doesnít care that the deer is feeling pain Just wanting to feed Like the pain feeds on me
This poem is fantastically written and deeply emotive. I know all too well how it feels to be enveloped by fear, pain and self-loathing and I am finally getting through a bulk of it....so trust me, as long as you keep thinking, keep writing and keep surviving, you WILL get through. Welcome to Passions, you will find many a friend here, as I have done.

Anthony, I love this poem,... not just for the words but for the emotions behind the words. It reminds of the way I felt for so much of my life. It always seems to help to get things down on paper even though it may be frustrating to find the right words at times. You may find that writing allows a "vent" unlike any other... it's different than talking to someone and it's different than throwing things or simply crying... it gives a helpfulness all it's own. Good luck, Anthony.
Thank you everyone for the complements and welcome. I just got into poetry the day I joined this place and then wrote that poem and posted it. So I'm still learning poetry and like reading and writting it. I should be posting another poem or two in a day or so. Thanks again for the complements, it means a lot to me.
No words could describe the feeling that you have left me with after reading this I can only say that you tapped into your soul and received a mirror image of my own...together but alone. You have a gift that you have chosen to share, thank you.
Oops! I don't visit for a day, and I miss out. Welcome, Anthony, to this wonderful second home. I am sure you will have a long and healthy stay. Enjoyed your first post, and will look for more... Keep writing and share your "pain."
Don't care what people say Just follow your own way Don't give up and use the chance To return to innocence. -Enigma
