Pain

Written by: Mothusi Makhaza

As pain streaks through my body,
I think of all the wrongs I have committed.
I feel the pain you felt and just wonder;
Was it really worth the trouble?

Would I have reacted differently?
Would I have taken you back?
Would things be different now?
I really wonder. 
It really gets to me.

It pains me to see you fall
Slowly in love with another man
To see you love me less 
To see this relationship go up in flames.

I am a man of  flaws I must admit
But sharing a woman with another man?
That now is pain I cannot endure
Sharing love is not a man’s pleasure

My aim is to please you
My pain is being in love with you.
My gain will be having you eternally
And I will aim again for you heart 
All this I will do if you please

I will like I said do all that 
As for now though, 
Pain still streaks through my body
And love flows through my veins
In vain I am crying. In love? I’m lying

I am in pain 
My heart is in heat
Scorching rage hurts me
I am appealing to you 
Let us be or let me be.
All this I am doing cause,
I’m in pain.
