I look, I listen.
The words Ive written
tell me more than Id ever wished to know.
Days grow longer
thoughts dwell, expand, explode
I see air swirling in circles around my hand,
tiny particles of violet light
caress my canvased skin.
A humming in my brain
deep dark caverns of parts untouched.
In response, my temples pound pain
shooting nerves never ending.
The veins in my eyes bulge and swell
I shed a tiny tear.
salty and sweet
to the taste of my tongue,
more real than any thought
Ive ever touched.
