The Phantom Limb

The Phantom Limb Syndrome refers to a strange and unique sensation that one might feel that makes one believe, and even gesticulate accordingly, that an amputated or missing limb is still attached to the body and is moving appropriately with other body parts.
It has been reported that the majority of these sensations are acutely painful.

Why exactly am I referring to this clinical syndrome experienced in amputees.
Well, it is only known to some of my very close friends how I have been psychologically ravaged on this very day, just as one trying his best to come to terms with the pains that can have a perfect analogy in the aforementioned syndrome.
There has been an intense showdown that was the worst case of a blast from the past for me. It was much more than revisiting an old wound, a bruise that hasn't heeled despite my best efforts, it was a case of involuntary surrender to a single traumatising individual. Nothing could have been worse in today's situation, nothing could have been more disturbing, as I couldn't have been more unprepared than today.
Why don't the body of an emotional amputee wither on its own, even after the emotional wings have been mercilessly hacked.
I pray to God, more out of a conditioned reflex than an active rendition of a soulful obeisance, that the perpetrator in question have divine mercy. And I genuinely wish away my limb, my vestige, I forgo any semblance of passion for the wings of my fantasy.
