An old poem that reveals itself to me over and over again. To all you S&M folks out there ---shhhhhh!!!! listen! this one's for you.


Why do we hurt the people we care about
Why do we find pleasure in pain;
In the heavens the sun chases the moon

Here on earth we find death in life
Joy after sorrow
Sky after rain;

Is it true that god creates in pairs
That the world knows none of one
Without the knowledge of the other;

And maybe, just maybe
We ask for good
By bargaining with the devil
For freedom by the sword;

And we induce the birth of the child
By accepting the labor pains
We quench our thirst for love
By turning our backs on them;

And we cut ourselves first
Sometimes deeply
In order to receive some grace
…And some morphin
The classic case of conditioning.

Thoroughly enjoyed the poem, particularly the second line of the first stanza: "Why do we find pleasure in pain;".
