Pleasurable Pain (J Two)


Pleasurable Pain (J Two)

I desire to take the pain back from you
the one so intensely entwined
with the pleasure I hope I gave you
that they were a passionate Gemini

I wish to reach into your body
cup the hurt in my hands
and remove it from the man inside you
I want to see your drowning eyes
shine like a cloudless day again

From my hands to my arms
I will embrace your distress into me
Carried with the memories
that are better than fantasies
I will cherish it as I do them
for knowing that you have the pleasure
will make any pain its twin

And I will hold them both as I held the one you
