Phantom Pain

I found myself walking a straight line
across a sober rope
every worry
punching my chest
hard enough
to threaten a fall
every strike
rattling broken desires
to take the route
to leave it all

hitting bottom
doesn't hurt
neither does 
the climb back up
it's the memory of the heart
a phantom pain
strong enough
to force a paralyzed soul
to feel the rain
and crawl away
from the haunting agony

    1. You think so? Thank you! I probably will. I don't think my mind will give me the option to take a break.
