Deep pain pulses to the root of me
Aches in my throat
Squeezes my skin
I shudder into the experience
Folds my body to the floor
Pressing nose to corner
The ground has no stability
Shower running
Sounds like miles away
I know the dichotomy of pleasure
and it’s sister pain
I know they are not so estranged
I release to it
Feels like birthing a ghost
I allow myself as supernova
And greet collapse
It is my own treasure
What is unknown awaits
Whispers gently feint sight
I feel into the pleasure of this pain
Savor its trumpeting of creating space for what is to come
I do not fear my pain
In embrace I let go of shame and allow
It’s current to free me
