Ache

For the most part, I’m ok.
But then

a silence will settle and
an ache
will radiate
from the center of my ribcage

twisting lungs & larynx into suffocating lumps
curdling memories along the sour synaptic connection
     between digestive and cerebral systems
detonating dormant tear ducts

and surfacing
like a hundred subtle stab wounds
on my desolate skin.
Poetry

How ironic that the cure to my post-Hansa Studio “infection” was to STOP putting cream on it. Yet how did it break out like that? I have been clear since the day I got back from Vienna, yet I have no doubt it will reappear the day before I leave for Berlin on 13th June. 22 more words

Psychosomatic....

“The state of mind affecting the physical state of the body”

Baby Got Back Pain

I suffered from back pain on and off for about 18 years. My severe sciatic pain was periodic for more than a decade. It made it hard to walk at times and caused a sensation that conjured the image of being stabbed in the ass with an ice pick. 899 more words
