Married to Pain

There are moments during a rare warm Siesta Moon,

When the pain ebbs and my body sings a softer tune.

Sighs of relief! Pain gone brightens usual Agony Moon,

My cruel lover who won’t let go sings besetting croon,

Beastly howling like a lost coyote during a Dusty Moon!

Our relationship began by accident, a trap by the goon!

I married pain in the greenish light of a Ghoulish Moon…

Day, years, decades pass as I take medicine in a spoon.

Divorcing pain I will joyfully dance under a Fiesta Moon!

  1. Just prayed for you after I read this poem, praying for the Lord to sustain you and for Him to lessen your pain. One day our Savior will declare that marriage to pain null and void.

    1. Yes, He will. I won’t miss it at all! Thank you for your prayers Jim. My heat went down last night, a scary thing for me but just as I was reading your comment, I heard it come back on.:0) I so appreciate those prayers and I’m praying for you too.

  2. Hi, sis! may I try to answer as you spoke, a bit?

    There is a holy brotherhood of pain,

    that kindly calls and knows by name,

    those on whom the cold rain does fall,

    to huddle beneath His love enthralled.

      1. Pam, yes, this is true of you!
        Malachi 3:16 Then they that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name.

      2. Now you’re making me cry. Thank you, sweetheart. Mostly, I try to write above my pain, under my pain, or around my pain but it bleeds into everything I write so, I decided to write through it. I didn’t expect such love. Love you back Maria.
