Why does pain hurt?


Why does pain hurt?

Like a hot spoke burrowing through

The soft chambers of our heart,

It cleaves a severe path.

Oh, the agony of heartbreak.

How agonizing is the feeling!

The pain of it clamps its hot fingers

Around our tender feelings,

Suffocating their softness

To leave us helpless and alone.

Yes, that is how pain behaves.

That is what it feels like.

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (www.rianplacements.com), by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.
