TIMM Tag of the Week, Vol 12

Tag: pain

Sometimes, I think it's what reminds us that we're still alive, the simple fact that we can still feel pain. For some people, it's a periodic affliction, for others it's far more consistent. But as far as anyone can be certain, the dead and the non-living do not feel it.

Featured Pieces:
"Careful, It Might Be Contagious," Monday, April 15, 2013
The final line of this poem gives tell to the mysterious affliction that affects me (but no, I won't give it away, you'll have to click through for yourself). It's something that affects me daily, but I can't imagine living without it.

Sometimes, the best way to heal is to imagine yourself better. It may not always work, but when it does, it's worth the struggle.

"White Mistress," Monday, November 15, 2010
Sometimes verse isn't the best way to capture something poetic. So, sometimes you have to give prose a try.
