Day 13 - The Impossibility of Feeling

by Karen Michelle

I cannot speak right now,
lest my words
betray my thoughts.

I am stilted,

There is nothing here
for me to give you,
no way for you
to help me.

I cannot pull
myself out of myself
nor can you
do it for me.

I will sleep
and I will rise
and who knows what
will happen.

Perhaps we will
repeat this cycle
for a further 24
or 48 hours.

Or maybe I will have
temporary amnesia, a
momentary lapse
in sentiment -

and all will seem
right with the world.

I will remember
how to breathe again.
