A Performance

Pain
brings a
momentous
performance by
the introduction
of excruciating
dancing between nerve endings
followed by tourniquet twisting
when muscles scream out a crescendo
and the mind closes the curtain on pain.

    No pain no gain? Maybe. A write as thought-provoking it is, a write that I am still reading over and over again. A write written with greatness. Love, Sami.
