Through Pain

I’ve a nostalgic sort of suffering,
An ear infection, if I am to understand
(or a slender blade piercing either side of my skull)
Hot pads and an old dryer relieves the pain,
But it’s the deafness that swallows me in helplessness,
Waking up in the middle of the night in tears,
Weeping at my pitiful helplessness,
Weakness of my body wracked in pain
(If only I’d a knife to slip below my skull!)
Like a child who cannot understand
Why life is suffering.

      1. Hahaha, very well, I’ll tend to a doctor if it gets worse. Luckily my age has only affected my alacrity rather than my ears.
