What of the woman 
Who lies awake, alone, at night. 
The haunting of that word inhuman, 
Frozen without flight or fight. 

Who lies awake, alone, at night 
And traces every word. 
Frozen without flight or fight, 
Silent uncertainty reforming blurred. 

And traces every word, 
Legs twitching, driving pains. 
Silent uncertainty reforming blurred, 
Itches fill constricted veins. 

Legs twitching, driving pains, 
Repeating words, overwrite. 
Itches fill constricted veins.
Who lies awake, alone, at night.
