all my nerves

by Skyfire   Nov 30, 2020


hum
with pain,
exploding down
my throat

my pupils
snap
and dilate -

my fingers are
strained
and slow.

so slow.

i wonder if
my pulse
will
kill me.

      That's very kind Ben. In a moment of honest vulnerability I'll admit that I wish pain weren't my most familiar inspiration. Thank you for appreciating.
