the feeling feeling

every
hair
on your body raised;

shivery;

the choking feeling of it in your
throat,
your lungs;

every
muscle. tense.
aching.
strained.

hands warm because the
blood
burns through you.

grief:

it is such a
feeling feeling.

you
cannot help
but

to feel it.

and feel it with
every
fibre
of your being.

your eyes
leak
and your nose
runs
and the raw intensity
of
feeling the feeling
courses
through you
in all its violence.

and suddenly it is

gone.

it has trickled out of your
pores and
you are left
weak and
tingling and

empty:

your cheeks still
wet,
your nose still
running,
your heart still
sore.
