Pain in life

The touch of finger nails gripping at a heart 
pulling and slicing , breaking it in two
Destroyed  beyond recognition
Just for wanting to hear the words "i love you"

The feel of cold steel against flesh
A bright gash left as a reminder behind 
Life slowly ebbing from that body 
All because of a good deed and trying to be kind

A loved one silently waiting 
Tears beging to trickle down their cheek
Yearning , craving ,thirsting ,
For communication and someone with whom to speak 

A baby left neglected in its cot 
A cat or dog abandoned in the wet or cold 
These are some of the things i think of as pain
Of horrors that happened  and then their stories told
