Pain

Pain was not that time you hit me
fists raining down upon my face and my head. 
Pain was that shard of bitter ice 
through my heart, 
that I was not the Princess you said. 
A thousand punches would hurt less
they only left me numb, 
but that topple from my gilded throne
left me shattered, left me undone. 
Pain is the thought that my Knight
abandoned his gallantry and his white steed. 
Pain is the tumbling down of our house of cards
based on one heartbreaking, irreversible deed.

Wow!! That was a VERY powerful début piece RIO!!...... And although it is most decidedly sad & heartbreakingly ugly subject matter... it is VERY well delivered.... with some striking phrasing that paints truly powerful imagery in the minds-eye of the reader!! ~

         ~ "Pain was that shard of bitter ice through my heart..."

Stunning word choices that convey the writers intent BEAUTIFULLY!!...... well done dear poet sister!!....... and..... my deepest thanks to you for sharing this...... there is NO doubt in my mind that this was VERY difficult to write..... it occurs to me that perhaps it HAD to be written for your healing processes to begin their due course......I pray that your heart mends as quickly as possible and blossoms with even greater beauty for having gotten through the experience!!........ Cosmo is a fine and supportive community...... you have landed in good place here.......WELCOME to COSMO dear poet sister!!......Hugs-n-Smiles!!.........T xo : )

This packed one hell of a powerful  punch ..

Pain was not that time you hit me

through my heart, 
that I was not the Princess you said.

I hoped people would get this. I could've written loads of words, but seemed to make more sense this way. It is true. Thanks for comments/support. Xx
