Insouciant Ache – a poem

For a chance at the mildest of reliefs

We might risk much to gain a loss thereby

In sensation, costs incurred in imbalances

Experienced to offset dire sickness born

Into the form, framed by a cage of compensation.

*

Agony as synonym for existence, pleasure

Not only sought but drawn up from depths

Dank as forgotten tombstones, dredged indeed,

Dodging many obstacles during the ascent,

That apotheosis small sometimes by comparison.
