Hearing his name

Hearing his name

A Poem by under-the-water

Hearing his name.

It brings 

   Scratches 
        Scrapes

               Nails    

                   Cuts.


Hearing his name

  feel 

      pain.


But pain is something.               

    Pain is a feeling.

                You feel pain.

                     Hearing his name

                             There is something


    there.


There is something there

Painting

      Caking

          Shoving

               Laying

                    Covering itself

over the numbness.

Even if it jabs

 Digs

   Stabs

      Throbs

There is something there

Filling the empty space in which had been

 Devoured

 by the 

        numb

            Frozen

                Paralyzed

                           Dull

                      Dazed

             Senseless

That had taken away my 

fire -

My Spark.

That had taken away my colors.

Leaving me with a pallet of 

rainy days

       Dark clouds

            Wet cement

               Damp side walks

                      Stained cheeks


And droopy eyes.
