Offensive Ache

Tormented fingers
across the keyboard

Release sought
from unrelenting

Agonizing assault

Pain denied

Cascade of words
from tormented digits

Satiated deliverance
once more

    1. Thank you, Audrey. I learned all of those old-fashioned handcrafts, back in the day. My mom taught to embroider when I was very young. I still dabble in it to this day. A lost art form. I also taught myself to crochet when I was a teen. So along with the typing, I give my digits quite a bit of abuse. πŸ™‚


  1. Oh I love this one! Thankfully, I can’t relate; no arthritis here… however, my poor fingers often can’t KEEP UP with my brain! I guess in time then they will become sore and painful as they work so hard to keep up πŸ™‚
