    I’m hearing screaming in my head again.
    The sound so far away and so intimately close.
    It tightens my chest.
    The sound of utter terror
    unforgiving loneliness
    desperate pain.
    I hear the screaming in my head again.
    All attempts to silence it
    simply lengthen the course.
    It echoes in me
    filling a great space
    as if I were hollow.
    It echoes as if I was not flesh and bone
    soft and porous
    countinuing on as if I were an infinite space
    fading only at the edges
    where distance overcomes the reach of senses.
    I ring like a struck bell with the sound of screaming
    the voice, though within me, mine and and not mine
    agonized, unyielding, unhearing, unseeing,
    always the one note,
    high and stripped raw
    the disembodied stopping for breath
    going momentarily quiescent
    the harried stillness waiting for the cycle to start again.
