It hurts to feel......but only in feeling do you become real

You've been in darkness so long
the light burns your eyes.

You wince and flinch,
creeping backward, slowly....
You'll burn! You surmise.
Too intense,
It's a thousand degress!
A shock to your body.
You've been in such
a deep freeze.
Yes, there is trauma
when parts of you melt.
Blocked off receptors
so long past have felt.
It almost will kill you
to have you revived!
Your existence is such
that you only function
when you're completely deprived.
I pity you pauper for covering
yourself, so afraid.
So shall you continue 
to live in drought when you
hide in the shade.
