Geography of Pain

You taught me the

geography of pain

You led me through

the enchanted deserts of longing,

Through a ghostly landscape

of strangled hopes

Speeding past the accusing

milestones of dead yesterdays

You pointed out the bleak

landmarks of childhood’s griefs

You stood beside me

Below the towering cliffs

of ‘Impossible’

And revealed to me

the meaning of desolation,

The agony of the final farewell.

I explored with you the

frontiers of loneliness

And embraced the deadly

intoxication of hopeless dreams

You were my guide through

the atlas of pain

I remember.

I wish I could forget.
