CAUTIONARY TALE IV--PAINS OF LOVE:ANESTHESIA

Embrace your pain,
it will enfold
you back lovingly.

Everyone needs hugs,
though some are
better than others

Some lovers never
let go, even
after the divorce.

    1. I can embrace my pains Brian but I will never be ruled by them. Slowed some for sure but fuck it, it only hurts when it hurts. I prefer my hugs naked and without barbed wire though.

  3. I don't know about the pain part. I've got rather minor arthritis in my hand and when it aches at night there is no way to embrace it. Pop a pill for that mother fucker. And, you are certainly right about the hugs and the lovers. But what's wrong with that? (Asking metaphorically) If there is one thing there isn't enough of in this world, it's love.

    1. Carleton I have to check with a doctor to be sure but I think surgery #17 has left me with an extreme case of surgical/trauma arthritis in my left shoulder and T1. It's been 18 months since the surgery and something in 't right in Meville.

      Our generation defined love in a completely different way than this current one that is taking over as we old bastards die off--we have plenty of love to give unfortunately they don't recognize it as love, but rather as an opening.

  4. I'm hoping the dentist can fix my issue tomorrow so I can stop embracing my pain. :)

  5. Mark, I avoid pain and to me a divorce is leaving the pain behind. xo

    1. Jodi---I take it you are not a masochist then? Divorce is losing at least half of everything including a heart and creating a vacuum that fill with something depending on what one allows to fill it.

  6. Is there a hidden meaning here of addiction that continues after the pain is gone?

    1. Interesting question Jeff, I guess some people can get addicted to pain or addicted to the remediation of pain. For me I'd just like a remedy.

  7. I love hugs, not pain though ~ Been hobbling since last week because of a sprained ankle so I am looking forward to walking without a limp this week ~ I have never been divorced but what is the use of having one, if both can't let go ~

    1. Yes Grace this one was more personal for me. after two years of not getting a diagnosis from a a doctor I finally figured out why I have not had a pain free day in more than 18 months. Now I just have to wade through the sea of bullshit to figure out who pays for what. It'd be so much easier if we had socialized medicine where everyone got the same.

      Here is a free one for Ya (((HUG)))

  9. Sometimes love remains, good or bad. You're right, though. The pain is part of the process.

  10. Love and pain seem to go hand in hand. We either love too much or too little and both ways are painful.

  11. Pain becomes an old friend...the only one to sit up with us at night. Ever lose a tooth? When it's gone, we probe and probe for it.
