The Residue of Pain

Layer upon layer

Thick gooey tar strewn

Grooves dug deeply

Curves smooth after so many

Twists and turns in the shadows

Painful to unclog

Swelling and throbbing

Blistering and stinging

Raw and screaming

Tremors of terror erupt

When the clog is broken

It is your birthright

This pain built for you

It is your antidote

Save it and it grows

Like tar

Icky sticky pulling you down

With slow strong gravity

Remember the antidote

Put your mind on it

Examine it

See the facets

Trace the light

See it as one jewel

In your treasure chest of life

Set it down

Give it a pillow

Give it a hug

Shine it

Keep it warm

Put it in perspective

Let it flow through you

In whatever way it is

Don’t fight it all the time

It needs rest

Love needs your attention

Now

Always 

See it as your jewel

In your treasure chest of life

Set it down

Give it a pillow

Give it a hug

Shine it

Keep it warm 

Put it in perspective
