The pain passing over

The pain passing over

A Poem by likesgreeneggsandham

Truth started to tumble its humble words

Onto the page

Raw, written no longer wrapped

In judgements heeded

You had felt the body leaving

Accepted death as you knelt with a bar of soap and a prayer

But weeks passed into days within lifetime’s

Certain uncertainties

Fierce consensual reality reigned down upon you

Medication the mediator

Societies’ safe sanity restored

And as you felt the pills shut doors

Bang windows of seeing locked tight

You felt your Self stir

With a deep knowing that you watched from within

The pain passing over

Interesting poem, super surreal to start with! I did struggle to understand some of the metaphors, but then again this is a first reading! But I really like how after the line about pills, the poem becomes more regular again, it's a really good use of language, well done!
