nothing (7 Sep 06)

11 Jun

this is what nothing feels like
  emptiness getting larger
  when space can not hold

   teeth from grinding
  when space can not hush
   the howls

  when space rips sobs in half
hear me! Hear me
  I am crying your name

  in vain
   wasting my breath
I swallowed bitter news

  the stomach is vile
  all evil
emptiness gets larger

pierce me, puncture me, tatoo
  this empty empty space
(no more permanent than I)

assault me with burning
skin
for missing the threads of your touch
