I don’t want to forget. I want it to linger.
To make a nest in my body And burrow in the depths of my being.
Until it nibbles its way to the trigger, And rage thrusts me forward; Until my suffering heals the broken, And moves the motionless:
My pain will be felt By everyone I touch.
And by you, Who touched the most precious parts of me.
