Pain

they say . . . . .
"keep your friends close
your enemies closer"

so tonight I'll writhe
under your magnitude

rumpled sheets
clenched
in balled fists

begging and pleading
sweat beading
as I let you fuck me

    1. I don't usually curse in poetry but when it comes to pain it seems to call for it. :)

  5. Sorry the pain is back, hope it has subsided now.

    Yep, I was shocked by the ending but totally get it, I too use the F. word frequently when pain strikes.

    Hope you have a pain free week, cheers, T. :)
