The Pain.

Do you think there comes a point where the pain just stops? Or is it never-ending?

Isn’t there a point when you no longer care because you know that it could not possibly hurt anymore? The pain is absolved and the fear is gone because there is nothing left of your soul to be ripped apart. When it happens you sit on the floor, your back to the door, and just stare at the wall. Somehow the emptiness is comforting then. You don’t want to stand up because you know exactly what is waiting for you on the other side of the door. Some people tell me that they see the darkness begin to rise from the floor. They can no longer fight off the darkness. Hence they welcome it inside them.

The light goes out, the soul extinguishes and the pain disappears.

Is that how the pain disappears?

  1. yes, i think such a situation arises when u've crossed that 'breaking point' and at that time there's nothing to lose ..actually u dont really care what happens next. u just somehow start enjoying the emptiness.

    the picture just fits. good one

  6. when we chose to end the inward suffering and expand on our consciousness the ache and pain goes away. it is the glorious ability we have to let go and hence cut down on the aching which not many use wisely and hence go on complaining how much they are in pain.

    hasnt yet registered to me.
    i ached once, but not any more and it isnt out of fear or knowing what the future holds, but my conscious decision of flushing what needs to be gotten rid off.

    ranj se khoogar hua insaan to mit jata hai ranj;
    mushkilein mujh par pari itni k aasan ho gaeen

  10. yes there comes a point where the pain just stops but the reasons for this painless state can be different, like if u freeze yourself and close yourself inside your own fortress or u just tell yourself that it is a time when I should have to stop caring about anything.

  16. the pain never completely dissapears...
    "comfortably numb" is just a transient phase.

  18. the pain never ends even if we don't care, it comes backs to us.Its just we become stronger as time passes and it stops haunting us.
