no suffering

don’t even try

taking my pain away

don’t even think 

about fixing me

I am not broken

feeling  intensely

is not suffering

pain is my friend

the one

I can trust and count on

without it 

I hurt myself in the fire of attraction, passion and longing

without it 

joy and pleasure

would turn boring

losing lustre rather quick

without its persistent whisper

I would be placing my heart 

where it doesn’t belong

bedding down in the wrong bed

without it

I would ignore what needs my attention

instead of dressing my wounds

without feeling it

I would be foolishly running in circles

like a jester without truth 

Wolfgang Lee moving from the heart
