The Natural State of Things

You scream when I try to pet you, because it hurts to feel love
And I whisper to you I know how it feels
This life is a gift
On those days when love feels like a splinter imbedded in the skin
And pain seems the natural state of things
We could strive for enjoyment
But such an effort feels unnatural
In such a state, taking this gift for granted seems the only reasonable course
So tired
But this body heals itself
I don’t know I could ever feel whole
But I will continue to fill the hole
Understanding the right chemicals will soon inspire a sence of invincibility
So feel gratitude for this pain
It is pain that will soon contrast such great pleasure
So alive
I don’t know I could ever feel whole
But I will continue to fill the hole
