Flesh Remembers - Poem by Chryssa Velissariou

See how I 'm laughing!
I forgot you, I forgot all about you...
There is nothing
Anymore acute.
The nightmares,
The night-awakenings,
The sighs,
The illness,
The tears...
The provocative
Veins at the wrists
Are deafening to me,
As they throb with life...
I can deal with all these
Easily now.
I've learned how.
And even when it starts
-This pincer
In my heart-
In the night usually
Struggling me...
Sometimes when the truth
Rings in tin roofs
Along with the rain,
I smile shamelessly
To your blurry image
And I know...
You hear me
Slowly mumbling:
I can stand it now, go away!
I do not belong to you anymore...
I do not know why, but
My body, when numb,
Always betrays me:
It's still yours...
