In my head, In my heart

In my damn lower parts

I am not alright

I’ve been physically wronged


Don’t comfort me, rational thoughts

You diminish too much

This is not a simple hiccup

This is a full-on surgical problem


I am not alright!

I am violently pissed

I have no one to punch

So, I punch these keys


I am not alright!

Freak-out washes over me

Limbs ache with terror

Mind wants to sleep


Tomorrow’s dance is the same

My curse word is wait

Just a little while longer

And then I’ll be hurt but cured
