Ache

my words have taken 

a hiatus

from mouth

to pages

ellipses dance.

tell me how to stop this 

ache.

how do you function 

when your lungs forget to inhale?

when premature ventricular contractions 

take over 

every moment.

tell me if you fell the same,

or is it

agony veiled behind 

thick lashes?

or ocean storms brewing 

in your eyes.

i have an earthquake 

in my brain,

so tell me

how

to 

shut 

it 

down.
