Heavy

I wonder
what it is
that makes
a person
feel so heavy?

Every muscle aching
from overexertion
in a chorus of pain
pulled tight like
the strings of
an orchestra.

The tug
on my heart
and the burning
in the palms
of my hands
waiting to
wrap themselves
back around you.

The sensation
that leads to
the replay
which brings
on the idea
of what might
come next.

The memory
of all this
and the protests
of every inch of me.

That’s what makes
a person feel
so heavy.
