Does it ever catch you off guard,
Suck the breath out of you?
Can you feel it living, breathing,
Hear it beating, a drum roar in your ears,
Or feel it, a finger tracing invisible shapes
On damp skin?
Does it steal words from you
Then inject you with thousands,
Or keep you awake at night
Clawing at your insides until you don’t think you can stand it any more
Before it lies you down,
Kisses you
Then curls up next to you
In a dream for a night
And lets you sleep,
Lets you believe
In nothing for a moment?
Does it?
Does it?
