Pain

 

Misery is the company she keeps

As tears surge through her veins

She articulates every ounce of feeling

Flooding through her weary mind

The beauty of her petals make you sigh

And the loss of her love make you weep

Along with drops of salt that flow

Upon the beauty of her anguish

For she has inhaled the breath of loss

And danced with the shadows of agony

  15. Kay, you have managed to express pain in a very beautiful way. Your images are quite effective. Detached yet intimate voice in the poem, seeming somehow to be inside the pain and also observing it from the outside.
