A Simple Wish For Pain

I've seen a saint suffer no less 
     than a crucifixion 
When the strongest man in the world 
     was bruised by a kiss
From the lips of the only woman
     to blossom without life
But when it came time to accept pain
     you wouldn't believe
A father of four begging for death
So what hurts worse than pain?
