pained

a leaden finger presses down

unaligning the unsuspecting spine

aquatic undulations grow quiet

nerves fray and twitch

dull ache pulsates

limbs a-dragging

water-logged

swollen

compressed, congealed

unconfined, uncontained

pressing all its fatted sides against

that chronic dam of

untapped agony:

pain
