You are currently remarkable.

This will be the strangest doctor visit of your life.
Time passes at a speed you can describe as neither fast nor slow,
and pain doesn't quite hurt. You receive sympathy from no one.

Strange things slip from your tongue
and beat your teeth into noise makers.
Chatter chatter you chatter away
and your voice carries
sounds that injure my pride.

I have no idea if I'm lying.

I laugh, though.
You make me forget what four years felt like.
I'm sure I make you forget too.
There are too many things wrong for me to ever say what I sometimes feel
during bliss, during ecstasy. I'd sooner put my hand over fire.

I still never sleep,
but at least I have someone to ignore the sun with.
