The Balance of Pain and Pleasure

You have seen so much pain in love
all these many years
your thoughts run frightened
intensely so
through your misty tears.
So many thoughts
of that perfect love
all lusting so sweetly
and delving deeply
into your chosen one.
Why must this trueness
come to pass
into and through our lives
though not to last
and brings us back to pain so fast?
Could our decisions be based on greed?
Could senselessness control true needs?
Should we search
all our lives...
for the Balance of Pain and Pleasure?
Yes, the search must never end
lest our suffering do us in
given time, our hearts will mend
and accept
the Balance of Pain and Pleasure.
