Theme: Pain

This Pain

This pain is an offshoot
Of your longing and loss
It's now life's integral part
So endearing to my heart.

I am now accustomed
To live ever with this pain
So my friend without this
I'd feel empty and insane.

This pain is now my
Close companion and friend
So long this pain thrives
I get a feeling I'm still alive.

Comment Dear Nathmal Ji, somehow I forgot that creative expression of pain can affect or impact others too while in day to day routine I avoid sharing any personal or professional pain in the surroundings.

I sincerely apologize and wish you and Boloji members a very happy and colourful Holi.

Comment Dear Aparnaji,

The purpose of using 'in vain' was to make an expression of ''useless' or 'lacking worth'.

I admire time and efforts you spend on your editorial work in an endeavor to improve submissions and I would not like to suggest or do any amendment in editor's work.

Best wishes

Dear Jaipal Ji,

So my friend without this
I'd feel empty and in vain.

This original line of yours didn't seem grammatically right to me.

Hence, I changed it to

So my friend without this
I'd feel empty and insane.

You can see how "in vain" is used in these examples:

If you still feel that you would like to stick to your original line, you can change it.

Comment Dear Aparnaji,

Thanks a lot for your prompt attention and editorial contribution. However, 'in vain' was perhaps more appropriate in the 4th line of 2nd stanza in the context of what I had in mind.
