Poem - The Sufferer and the Stunned

The poem “The Sufferer and the Stunned” was inspired by a reader who admitted they did not understand a past poem, one of my darker fare.  Perhaps it’s for the best that people can’t understand the expressed pain.

The Sufferer and the Stunned

Blessed are those who can’t relate
to the poems of the dismayed
the depths plumbed beyond the curve
are foreign to the undisturbed

based on years without pain
perhaps a touch though not the same
as the writer with words to share
of despair bled upon the page

puddles seen of life expelled
still the reader is compelled
to state a mystery has been writ
when fortune lays outside the script

each with their own experience
nullifying the shared insight
with no judgment on each one
the sufferer and the stunned.
