I write what I feel…

Pain (a)

Pain (a)

Cobblestones assault me,
Needles in my wrist,
Pain, sharp, deep,
I lie, frozen at first.

Probing, mortified,
The dogs inch closer,
Necks stretched out,
Tails wagging, slowly I rise.

They gather around,
Eyes full of hope,
I open the gate
On my way to get help.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

    • It is, Gran. About 5 yrs ago I had virtually an identical fall and broke the right wrist – it was amazing how fast I became quite deft with the left! I never thought it would happen again. 😦
