Pain’s sweet delirium
Calls to me, kissing every scar
As if they’re delicate flowers
That needs to be milked of its nectar.
But there’s something else
Beckoning me to its side,
Begging me to not give up.
I cannot decide which call to heed
When the delirium of pain
Has always embraced me
Without judgment, without regret.
How can I choose,
Between the comfort and the unknown?
