It's this lump in my throat that seizes to be swallowed. The missing thoughts in my mind that keep me from reality. There are burns on my wrist from the ropes that bind them. My mouth is shut tight from the tape that conceals it.
It's the screaming in my head and the ringing in my ears. The shake in my hands and the ache in my feet. There is a burning in my muscles from the tension in my body. My deserted frame is collapsing.
It's the filth in my bones that wont wash away. The haunt of 2:00 am that relentlessly feeds this exhaustion.
