To finally feel something searing through
Your numb, inner tangled mass of sinew, stocks and synapses.
A glimpse of yourself.
A breath from somewhere else;
And yet, the consequential smile emerges regardless.
A resonance somewhere,
Leading to an outpouring of chemicals.
What can you do?
The mind, and mind alone is left with this
(No matter what your body says).
It may always remain.
As the polar opposite of hate, you are only too aware
That that something so potentially unbearable and wonderful
Waits patiently not far beyond.
