for your pain

for your pain

i didn’t realize that it is only about your pain
that you hurt so bad
it’s as if it wakes you up at night,
like a home invader.
and you try to placate it,
but your pain is pain,
and won’t be soothed.

it’s pain,
that’s all that it is

maybe it aches so that you think it will never end,
but it will end.
it’s only pain,
that’s all that it is

do you want me to see you hurt?
hear it? taste, smell and touch it?
i do.
i can see that you’re hurting.
i can hear it.

do you want help?
if i could,
if you would let me,
i would help.
i would do what i could.
but i can’t take your hurt from you,
and i’m not the one that hurt you.
it’s your pain,
and i don’t know who did it to you.

(i have my own hurts,
and they’re more than enough
more than i deserved,
if anyone deserves pain
so much that i have to remind myself
that it will pass.
it’s pain,
that’s all that it is)

you didn’t get loved well as a child,
loved like you deserved
like you deserve now.
and i guess you hurt so bad so long
it’s like it won’t end,
but it will end.

it’s only pain,
that’s all that it is.

feed your pain love,
feed it every good thing
it will heal.

it’s pain,
that’s all that it is.vangogh1
