Pain Of Words

These words are killing me

As I say them

I write them

As I think them

I see them

Forming inside me

Around me

On me

Behind

Everywhere I see

Words

I hear them whispering softly

Screaming deafeningly

Singing melodically

Reciting in spirit

Stabbing my heart with all that is

Itself meaningless

But still invading my thoughts

In my wake and sleep

Conscience lost within

The dark ocean of oblivion

Haunting my soul and all that it is-

Killing the essence of my self

Challenging to change all that I am

That is incomprehensible

Into the explicable

All that is mysterious of me

Into the vulnerable.
