Pain

How do you deal with pain?

How do you deal with heartache?

How do you deal with situations that hurt you?

 

In the past, I have hurt myself

I used to crave the pain,

That covered up the heartache I did not want to face.

 

I thought that by getting piercings,

Getting tattoos,

In addition, doing things to cover up my pain,

Would make my life easier.

 

I did not see that it just made it worse,

That is was just starting a fire

Within me,

That the flames would grow

Until I could not stand the heat any longer.

 

I had to stop the chain reaction,

I had to deal with each situation,

I had to learn,

I had to beat the flames down,

Until they were, finally out.

 

It is easy to face the pain in my heart

Before it takes control.

No, but I know I have to.

I cannot deal with the waves of pain

That I will create if I do not,

I will stand tall and say

Bring it on, you will not beat me,

I will remain on top

 

No matter what.

    Dunno. Never have found an effective way. Sometimes the physical pain is preferable to the emotional and mental pain. At least it I can deal with.

      that is what I used to do, now I know that it just makes the emotional and mental pain worse.

        Yeah. I’ve learned too. Yet for a little while it dulls it… allows the establishment of control.
