The Body Remembers

Location

West Virginia
United States

The body remembers what the mind forgets.

Forgets, you say?
Oh, no, no, never. No way. Locked away.
Maybe to resurface someday, when the moment
Seems safe enough to allow what was held at bay
to return.

The body remembers what the mind forgets.

Don’t touch me there, not now, not allowed!
Everything seemed fine only moments ago.
I hate you! Go Away! Don’t Touch Me!

The body remembers what the mind forgets.
