imagine strings wrapped tight around your head;

vertical lines striping down your face, squeezing your eyes,

crushing your skull.

imagine your skin as an eggshell;

breakable, suddenly, the soft fleshy insides ready to ooze out of the fault lines 

that split you apart.

imagine pain;

pulsing, throbbing, everywhere everywhere,

a bullet inside your brain and a scream lacing down your neck;

the strings of a corset being drawn ever-tighter around your mind.

 

imagine:

your head is the drum and the pain is slamming out a savage

beat; drumsticks against braincells, fists against bone, claws 

raking underneath eyes.

imagine:

 

you have fallen victim to your own brain.
