Just my thoughts on "Pain" you may want to add, should I have omitted any, your feedback is welcome.

Warm hugs and love



As understood in a noun,
 is emotional and mental distress
this would explain,
"the pain of rejection".

As in a transitive verb,
you'd require a direct object,
you would then sadden somone,
or make them feel distressed.

I do not refer to physical pain,
in time that will heal,
worse is the mental strain,
one that is concealed.

Intense sadness in dolour,
dread and anxiety in angst,
emotional torment in anguish,
anguish inflicted by torment.

Mental suffering caused by distress,
leading to affliction,
great mental anguish,
to where agony lives and thrives.

Pain, never quite understood,
and so difficult to explain.
to me it's much sadness,
and means heartbreak !

I think you covered pretty much all of it Elga, in an exceptional write. We all have different experiences of pain but I think everyone will relate to this, which is what makes this so poigniant and sad.

Very profound and insightful write! I can feel the pain. I agree, that physical pain can heal, sometimes not even leaving scars! But emotional pain, mental stress and anguish, inflicted deep into one's heart and soul can leave everlasting scars! Those who cut into another's heart and soul cause severe pain that can't be seen by others and often times the hurt person suffers alone and in silence. I think the worst quote that I ever heard is "Stick and Stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me!" which is better stated, "Sticks and Stones may break my bones, but words can kill me!" Thanks for sharing these wise words on pain. Blessings to you. May you have a beautiful and peaceful weekend!

I know the pain you speak of Elga. I believe only people who love too mcuh experience this. Most people never go to the depths to give their all, so they are unaware of the agony lost love can cause.In today's world love is more shallow for most, so they don't have to suffer the pain. This is an excellent write on the subject though painful.

Pain is felt when reading this piece, Elga, it is palpable to the reader how the author is showing the ache of a circle/cycle that feeds on self thoughts and recriminations. It matters not so much the source, to the relativity of mind, distress compounds and compiles bleak statistics of nothingness which sinks into soul, moment by moment, day after day, and kills slowly with its weight.

Strong write.

Elga, I've gone through quite a bit of "mental stress" myself, and what I've learned can be summed up in two lines:

pain may have tattered wings
but will always manage to fly

Warm hugs back to you

It's a pain that can't heal that really
tears a person up. A physical wound can
heal. Excellent work Elga. So sad.
Reviewed by Handsum Hart 11/10/2004
Rejection is painful and great the pain can be. Yet through pain comes strength.

Best wishes
