Of Pleasure And Pain

Poem By Anita Atina

The sense of pleasure

Feeds off the sensual

What we see, hear, taste, touch and smell


The fantastic reaction these external-internal stimuli trigger

Firing off when we see someone or something that excites us

We all live, sensitive in varying degrees, to pleasure and pain


What if you found, the balance thrown askew

Your sensitivity to pleasure and pain grown manifold

And you're living a sensory overdrive


The sense of pleasure is extreme

So is the sense of pain

Throbbing waves of silent agony surround


Smiling faces that mask great pain

Pleasant conversations papering over agonised hearts

Joie de vivre glossing over loneliness


Aching bodies pumped up for action on steroids

All hitting a painful hollow at the core

When the body slumps and the soul tires


Of faking life, what then?

What if you felt this goddess of pain

As acutely as the sensual mistress?

The more I read your poems, the more I wish I could go to a book store and buy a big thick poetry book by Anita Atina
Anita, you evoke our senses and make us think with this very intelligent poem from your skillful hand. Top marks and thanks for sharing this my friend. David
a nice one, evoking the senses in a very different manner
We all live, sensitive in varying degrees, to pleasure and pain What if you found, the balance thrown askew Your sensitivity to pleasure and pain grown manifold And you're living a sensory overdrive The sense of pleasure is extreme So is the sense of pain Very powerful writing Anita, , I understand this concept, perhaps only too well Love duncan X
