Poem - With A Scourge

“With A Scourge” is about a particular type of dance between two people. I was pondering the roles of the sadist and masochist. I can relate to the latter. The former comes from a place that I cannot fully grasp. It’s about have a personal reference. The poem examines these dynamics while proposing a common denominator.


With A Scourge

We're all victims in some way
seeking healing dipped in shame
pursued with agency of the one
on their side of parley’s route

top to bottom will find relief
give or take sensation’s bliss
euphoria by experience
negotiation spun to scratch the itch

there are two paths to be traveled
to salve a psyche with a scourge
by the harrier or the fawn
each has a place of their own

sourced from drama of the past
when the virtues are misplaced
put aside to fill a void
what’s then found is embraced

by one route or another
let’s not judge the controversy
when consenting is the theme
between adults seeking glee

putting forth or sucking in
tendrils of the embraced pain
we’re all victims in some way
living life in savagery.
