White hot pain sears through my body

I want it to stop but at the same time press down relentlessly

It's so unbearable I start to spasm uncontrollably

I wait for each piercing sting to dull before I move on

Once in a new spot the prior pain dissipates, as though never in existence

And then just when I think I cannot stop

I'm done.
