Whip-lashed doggy-tail

Never had a feeling
like this ever felt so degrading
back and forth with mind and heart 
continuously racing
bumping side-to-side
along the walls just grating
against with skin 
and pain eminating
from flesh, becoming bare
the eye can see what looks
to be painful as if
a bundle of hooks
tearing apart and away
the body to pieces
though still going back
still moving on
this love has in it
something terribly wrong
Why must one endure such
agonizing pain
how can one keep going back 
knowing what this love contains
whip-lashed over and over again 
and again 
crawling back towards this love
this love is a doggy-tail
wagging between it's legs
