Pain Magnet
After writing this poem and sending it out to others, I realized that many of us feel this way.

Why am I so attracted to pain
Negative forces zap my brain
If it's bad news, I hear it
If it's sad news, I feel it
Pain from others must transmit
As far as I run, I'll never shake
Traumatic feelings from my wake
My Mind is wrapped and double sealed
But Heart's thin layers have already been peeled
Incoming pain sits on the brain
Says "It's not you who I will drain"
Heart so vulnerable, exposed and raw
"Your bliss, contentment I will draw"
It gets me each and every time
Just when joy begins to climb
Am I supposed to get intense
Pain that touches every sense
How do others shield the force
Of sadness seeping through the pores?
