I get to know pain
each time I remember you.

I am acquainted with it
again and again.

I conjure your face
and pain engulfs me.

Like live wire,
it spreads

From my chest
to my arms

To the bone
in my ankle

It burns me.
I transform into pain.

Then, I fear
I will never be the same.

I will be no longer.

I swear:


Until that day…

Upon waking,
or while walking,

You creep into my thoughts
and that which embraces

Is something strange,
something unfamiliar

Something else…

(Soon, I will sigh out cynicism).
