A home for all the pain

They collected the wounds
of everyone who ever lived
into a vast furnace.

The wounds were
surprisingly homogenous, no:
ages,
accents
genders,
or cultures,
just raw pain
smelted incandescent
in2 liquid revenge;
forging 3 vast spikes,
licked sharp by violent flame.

Taking the Healer,
the one they blame
for all the pain,
they wounded him
with all their wounds
and pained him deeply with all their pain.

And so it came to pass, all the pain found a home in his.
