Mind & Body

It’s funny
what your brain can do
to your body,

how a broken mind
equals broken body.

My thoughts
creep around my head,
waltz with the dust mites
in the back corners,
seduce the closed cupboards
into opening and letting out
all the secrets stashed inside.

And then my limbs stop functioning,
my feet stop walking,
and my body is filled with you
because so is my mind.

I feel you in my hands,
taste you on my lips,

and I wonder when the pain
beneath my ribs
will dissipate

because the thoughts
still climb around my brain
and take their pain out on my skin.
