Agony

The two worst pains

I have ever felt:

 

Physical pain

coming out of surgery and

watching the clock turn for

my next set of pills.

 

Emotional pain

Clawing at my father’s bed,

Holding folded hands,

Tear stroked, uttered,

“Please wake up,

Wake up

Wake up!

Dad, you can’t be dead.”
