the oozing of unhealed wounds

 
I can hear it
dripping
its incessant repetition
carving ruts in my mind
wearing me to a frazzle
the run-off creating channels
distance is no greater than time
unable to stem the flow
or dam up the pain
grooved into my memory
like a backed-up drain
swirling endlessly
I want to pull the plug
and send it on
but no...
it continues to seep
innumerable acidic drops
pooling at my feet
the weight constantly pressing
dull-edged
its blunt nudge ever compressing
bruising my haunted psyche
jagged without honing
never sharp enough to actually pierce
yet neither does it ever
truly relent
and rather than break
I must bend
