Numb

He asked where it hurt.
I couldn’t tell him. It hurt
in the bottom of my heart,
the tips of my toes, the
lining of my stomach,
my frontal lobe, both
of my lungs. The better
question was,
where didn’t it hurt?

-Michelle K.

A paralyzing numbing heartache that starts at the place of my heart I dedicated to you, and ends nowhere.
