WEEKLY QUOTE: Through pride we are ever deceiving ourselves. But deep down below the surface of the average conscience a still, small voice says to us, Something is out of tune.

Itch

Behind my eyes
Burning… Bloodshot like I been smoking for days non-stop
At the back of my throat
Sore like I swallowed hot coal
In my ears
The longest Qtip can’t reach
It’s right there staring at me
On my palm
Behind my knees
In between my toes
Under my feet
Middle of my back down my spine
I try to reach it but my arms are not long enough
On my scalp
Covered by my puffy hair
Around my ankle
In between my thighs
Why on earth is it so hard to reach
It’s burning
It’s constant
It won’t stop
Oh what I would give
Just to scratch the Surface
Even only for a second
