blah-de-blah-blah …

the ache persists,
dulled, at times,

numbed by flotsam and jetsam,
the daily grind,

a busied mind,
strapped-in,
straightjacketted,

hazey-dazed,
seeking the elysium:

closure.

yet, still, continually,

the ache persists,

gnawing,
a talon piercing,
jabbing,

in the inside,
locked within a live shell,
the ordnance of gloom,

closeted away,
secreted in a hollow room,

yet, still, continually,
yearning,

the ache persists,

burning,
wracked by fire,
as the talon,
prods,

turns, twists.
