Silence,
cymbals crashing-
maddening!

Mind screaming,
thoughts-
ram-
against-
my-
skull.
Speaking-
to
silence-
the thoughts.

Won’t someone,
make some noise?!

“Batten down the hatches!”

The storm is brewing,
deep inside,
Steam ascending,
Smoke pours.

The ship,
moves,
mountainous,
the waves.

Slowly,
Gently,
it
breaks-
in two.

And all,
Are saved.

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.

Nineteen ninety eight

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

It swells and roars and it will not go away.
I plead,
cry,
hold it close.

In the snow,
alone,
naked,
feeling.

Feeling the pain from the snow,
numb.
Erupting inside.
Inside me, the pain,
flaring,
throbbing.

Rising
I soar;
distracted,
within the drug.
The pain is still there.
Burning,
tearing, clawing.

Inside you,
I feel you.
Sweat mingling.
I ache,
longing.
I still feel the pain.

Then.
night,
alone,
alone with the pain.
I hold it tight,
knowing,
I’m alive.
