pounding

there are chills across my skin
a pounding in my head that screams and screams
i lay on the cool tile floor
eyes closed against the still bright darkness
breath in and breathe out
slowly
through teeth i’m trying not to grit
it hurts and it won’t go away
not for a long time yet
a long long time
