I have fallen under a swoon.  I no longer breathe air. I am under water and breathing fire.  There is magic flowing through my veins supplying my every atom with a flicker, a quiver.  The constant vibration passes through me and spreads outward whispering up the backs of strangers expelling a song that surges forth from the depths of their souls but only I can hear them singing. 
shhh, it’ll be our secret.

The broken lines of my body betray the words that drop from my lips.
I am strong I say.
I am good I say.
But the weight bears witness to the truth and all is not right with this world I inhabit. 
There are screams hidden inside my bones. 
They are seeping out of the growing fissures.
It will not be contained.
Ah love and the tricks it plays on a willful heart. 
Lessons not easily learned will never be forgotten. 
This I must believe.
