Pain and Misery


XXXI Days of Poetry - Day the Fourteenth



Pain and Misery


Pain 
and
Misery
are not 
the same thing.

That's why they say 
Pain & Misery 
together, 
using both words. 

Pain, 
when flexing 
its muscles,
showing off,
is unrivaled, 
by anything.

But don't let 
Pain's radiance, 
its incandescent 
glow, blind you 
from the truth

that, Misery, 
is about as 
miserable as 
a thing can be.
