poetry

body aches

brain, brain,
hidden in the bones of my skull;
how you ache and ache within the confines of my soul.

heart, heart,
swollen between my lungs;
how you bruise with each rough word from my tongue.

eyes, eyes,
strained from all i’ve made you see;
how you must wish you could sear and blind me.

body, body,
tired and weary you walk and stumble;
how I’ve made you age and bleed and fade and crumble…
