After the Leaving

After the Leaving

First comes the shock.
An icy wave of numbness
washes over your body,
paralyzing your limbs
as you clench your hands
into white-knuckled fists.
Next comes the pain.
A crimson fire in your head
charges down into your chest,
squeezing and crushing,
roaring and raging until
your heart is a burning machine
squealing from the friction.
Then comes the sorrow.
A tsunami of inexpressible sadness
crashes down on your brain,
erupting into a torrent of tears
as your sanity fades away
into a deep, ebony darkness.

Kenneth Norman Cook
