Your Pain

Your pain is my disdain

I wish to wash it down the drain

To be cleansed of its stagnant reign

Your poignant, festering pain.


Your pain has left a stain

The permeation of your bane

That never, ever seems to wane

Your omnipresent pain.


Your pain is inhumane

Such agony should not sustain

The one thing that I need to gain

Is freedom from your pain.


Your pain, it soaks me like the rain

Drenching me and my domain

Happiness I cannot feign

Because of all your pain.


Your pain, it is, it's all too plain

I have to stop, pull in the rein

I cannot continue to remain

A prisoner of your pain.


Your pain, so deep, I ought refrain

Else fall on maddness as the Thane

The depth of it all too insane

Your eternal pain.

Many thanks Patricia & Stefan. ? I am pleased with it myself! Some people find this type of poetry to be inane. This took a bit of strain as each stanza had to pertain to the one fore and aft and not be mundane.

Lisa you are clever
Oops, forgot end ane
Guess I'll have start out
Start out all again

Welcome to my mixed-up brain
My poetry inane
It thunders out just like a train
Then down the kitchen drain

My brain was doped with novocaine
to help keep me on the sane
but I did it, can't complain
there is no gain without the pain

Your continued use of 'ane' endings I liked. I thought you'd run out, that no more would come out your brain again.......

Wonderful! I think I'll be revisiting this one, often, every once in a while when in need of solace. Great poem Lisa?
