Blue black

Blue black blue
up goes the impulse
with a current
travelling up, slithering up
up up up into the temples of the head
sometimes, it gets stuck
sometimes, it moves, keeps moving
sometimes, it tries to pop out
impossible as this is, the effort makes the space between the skin and the skull stretch
pain blossoms but doesn't travel
Suddenly, somewhere else, another impulse is born and it starts crawling
It travels across the body
to the heart
makes itself felt in different places in the universe of my body
I fail to comprehend why they travel or what they mean
They keep travelling
I fail to notice after a while
I see blue black blue
