HOUSE OF PAIN

HOUSE OF PAIN

A Poem by KCthelastboyscout
"

Maybe there is such a place

"
There is a house that sits alone where there is no neighborhood. The location is unknown. Maybe in dreams. The residents of this house are an exclusive club...The suffering... If you have been afflicted with pain or disillusionment of mind, body and soul you are welcome here. I will be awaiting to greet you at the front door. Look at my wrists. I am a resident too. Walk inside and let me be your tour guide... To your left, the terminally ill. Rape victims. Child abuse. The molested. To your right bulimia, anorexia, paranoia, depression, the suicidal. Rest assured there is a room for you. When you find what is suitable for yourself, just walk in. No need to knock .Just turn the knob. What will you see inside? That's only for you to know. I can guarantee you two things... You will face no judgement and you will not be alone

Would be nice for a safe house for people who need kind words and help. I liked the place you create. Hard world for many. Need places for the people who are struggling. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry. Made the reader think.

This is an absolutely stunning piece. Beautiful and touching. It may not make perfect sense to everyone but for those for who it does, it means so much. So short but it speaks volumes. Fantastic piece.

This is amazing. It is so imaginative and is relatable to nearly everyone at least in my opinion. It is a place for the people in which the darker things consume can come and rest with people who are going or have gone through the same thing. Even if it is a bit creepy, it makes perfect sense.

love it so well done and right on suffering is universal though sometimes myself included
we think that we are the only ones... going thru it..
that is why literature and authors such as your self make a difference.. on the surface things may look like a tranquil quiet day or home but underneath it are tensions, divisions, illness and everything that you so aptly mentioned in your work

I dunno I think there will be people who take offence because when you’ve been through something so horrendous it’s very personal to them and I understand what you are trying to say but it’s almost like your categoring people and saying what they have been through does not matter, but also not everyone deals with it the same way and I’ve think you be forgotten to respect that, not mad just saying
