Name of Song: Your pain is your boss

Getting to know them,
Like them or not,
Sometimes you connect
when they hit the right spot.

You decide to be friends,
You hang out a bit,
You find things in common,
You laugh at their wit.

You see them more often,
You learn more and more,
It seems they’re the one
As you embrace to their core.

Then something happens,
A hidden surprise,
It doesn’t make sense
but it still makes you cry.

Chorus
Unpeeling myself,
From the love I just gave,
But it just won’t come back,
Now an urge I just crave.
Stuck to their body,
Stuck to their mind,
Unpeeling myself
from a wound so unkind.
Time should’ve healed
All those feelings of loss,
But my mind cannot see
that my pain is my boss.

Many have tried
to understand loss,
I’m telling you now,
All your pain is your boss.

Your mind sleeps too much,
It’s the nature of pain,
Unconscious impacts
that throttle your gain.

You are a spirit,
You have a mind,
You have a body
You are naturally kind.

Reactions do happen,
A mystery that leads,
To pain and amnesia
where you know you’ll be freed.
