misconception

I have always
believed
that
a needle between the
toes
or
an open
wound
on the gum
was the most
intense physical
pain,
but
there is nothing,
nothing
like
the emptiness
of
wanting.

quiet


what can be said
when there is too much to say,
the voice inside
too loud,
speaking over itself
in an effort to control,
to destroy.
instead,
the silence
says it all.
