Internal Hemorrhage
 
I wasn’t sure about those words
That I have crafted out of pain
Intense and internal
Private and personal
 
I wasn’t sure how to use them
With confident, like the
Flying birds into the whirlwind
During typhoon or tornado
 
I wasn’t sure how to face them
With compassion, like the
Hermits so calm and serene
During meditation, even before or after
 
I wasn’t sure how to feel their-
Existence, like the woman
With her stillborn baby
During pregnancy, even before or after
 
I wasn’t sure how to communicate
With those very words
Like the warriors of the graveyards
During peace treaty, even before or after
 
I wasn’t sure how to reconcile
With those words and pain
Grief and deep wounds, sustained
During prolonged periods of hallucinations
