Hi. I like to write, I expect you like to read. What say we strike up an acquaintance?

My Pain

That I care
Is my pain
That your pain
Is my pain
That I lose
So you gain;
That is my pain.

That you drive
Me insane
And you think
This a game
That I lose
So you gain;
That is my pain.

That I love
You in vain
That my love
Is my pain
That I lose
So you gain;
That is my pain.

That your joy
Is my pain
That he lives
Is my pain
That his bliss
Is my pain
That I wish him
My pain
For your heart;
That is my pain.

I feel the pain!

Tye said...

Hmmm, guess I have got skills after all, lol...Thanks, MsAfropolitan; I'm almost feeling it too ;)

Wow! Great, great one. "That I lose, so you gain; that is my pain" has to be one of the most powerful expressions of love. Well done, my friend. You nailed it.

Tye said...

(@ Everyone, but especially at NYA): WOW!!! "I'm honored" wouldn't suffice, but I guess it can do until I find something more appropriate.

@NYA: Do refer to above statement, again, please. It's interesting, because, I was just about to re-beg you to re-visit my blog, and your comment pops up in my inbox; Great, great happiness! And thanks again.

Really soulful, I feel you.

Tye said...

There's something extra delicious about praise from people you respect...Thanks Myne.

PS: I've been meaning to say congratulations(es) on your book, but becasue there's so much content on your page it's pretty tedious to leave a comment (especially with my "heavily-laden" internet connection). S I guess, I'll just do it now, CONGRATULATIONS-ES-ES! and THANK YOU!
