Sometimes the disinfectant hurts more than the infection,
Sometimes the pain is better than the protection.

Sometimes the tears sting more than the smile,
Sometimes the yard tires more than the mile.

Sometimes the blood shines brighter than the blade,
Sometimes the heart is blacker than the spade.

Sometimes the kiss is sharper than the slap,
Sometimes the lure is worth the trap.

Sometimes the night is lighter than the day,
Sometimes the beast is weaker than the prey.

Sometimes the cut hurts less than the sob,
Sometimes the break is harder than the job.

Sometimes the lie is prettier than the truth,
Sometimes the alibi is better than the proof.

Sometimes the hate is kinder than the love,
Sometimes the buzzard is holier than the dove.

Sometimes the loser gains more than the winner,
Sometimes the saint is worse than the sinner.

Sometimes the girl is stronger than the boy,
Sometimes the child is more broken than the toy.

Sometimes the poison is sweeter than the cure,
Sometimes the dirty are more perfect than the pure.

Sometimes the world is worse than the deepest hell,
Sometimes the silence is more powerful than the yell.

Sometimes nothingness hurts less than breath,
Sometimes this life hurts more than death.
Please let me know what you think and thanks for reading! :)

How in the hell have I not heard of you before today? You are the most amazing poet I've ever seen.

All your poems have this kind of bounce to them that makes them flow and really bring out the content as you read them. Epic

I need to take what's left of my feelings away from your poetry because it's ruining them straightforwardly and ruthlessly and I can't take this anymore, I need a break.

A very powerful poem, yet such a simple structure. Actually, the simplicity is probably part of what makes it so powerful.
Personally, it's really hard to explain or decribe a feeling like that in the poem but you've captured it really well :)

Now I'm just going to cry over the wonderfulness of this beauty (and partly because it really hurts how true it is). You can just keep writing master-pieces like this one~

Thank you very much!! I used a simple, repetitive structure in order to mix it up a bit from what I normally write, so it's really nice to know that you think that that worked alright.

Haha, thanks! :D

This is really well written. Despite it being the same concept all the way through, and the same rhyme scheme, it doesn't become boring. Awesome job :)

I like this quite a lot. It's not often you find good, simplistic poetry on this site, and this is definitely a cut above the rest. Beautiful and even haunting, a twist on modernity, almost. The connections you made were very clever, and very parallel. I didn't detect any forced rhyme or forced connections. Very well written!

I love how you put a new twist on common ideas, everything that's seen as good being portrayed as worse than the alternative. It's very expressive.
