What Kills Pain?
Author: Laura


What is the ultimate pain killer?
Is it jumping off a pilar?
Is it doing drugs, a whole hell of a lot?
Or is it drinking, just a single shot?
Maybe it is lighting up the bowl.
Or maybe it's something deep in your soul.
Is it that three hour late night phone call?
Maybe it is spending time with friends at the mall.

What's the ultimate reason for this pain?
Is it having no time to kill?
Feeling all alone looking out the window sill?
Did the person you love say goodbye?
All your friends neglecting you, you'd want to die?
Or maybe you're caught up in all the lies.
Maybe the drugs have taken up your life.
Or maybe you've bleed to much from that knife.

So what is the ultimate pain killer?
No person is the same, well none that are sane.
The answer is actually quite plain.
But for me, I'll give up my answer to you.
Because only one thing i can do.
Is love the person that loves me.
But this, something different you maybe be.

So, love for me, is the ultimate pain killer.
But your answer is out there.
Trust me, you'll find out why they care.
