Where does it come from?
The pain,
inside.
More,
than any human thing.

Swelling, roaring-
I plead,
cry,
embracing.

Snowing,
alone,
naked,
feeling.

White pain-
numb.
Erupting inside.
pain,
flaring,
throbbing.

Rising
soaring;
distracted,
within-
drugged.
pain – check.
Burning,
tearing, clawing.

Inside you,
feeling-
Sweat, mingling.
aching,
longing.
pain.

Then.
night,
alone,
Pain and I,
holding it,
knowing,
I-
am-
alive.
