the mind in pain

When the body is in pain the mind suffers, but when a mind in is in pain, every body suffers:

The mind is in pain when brain cells tingle but forget to mingle,
speech becomes blurry like stars falling on the window shield of your brand new car,
answers leave a bitter aftertaste and you turn nostalgic towards questions that breed questions,
smoke rises from tongues scorched by the heat of political visions,
the sea evaporates and you shower with sand that was once rock,
when nothing is too much too hold especially at midnight when the clock roars,
pounds and pounds and pounds against glass doors locked in your mind.
you shed weight
and forget about love
and everybody suffers
