Trapped Nerve (acrostic for Craig)

by - Mr. Darcy   Feb 20, 2019

Travelling pins,
Red hot and long
Are peppering my
Paper spine.
Plead, I do,
Each day and night, but
Daggers are so unkind.

Numbness isn't a blessing,
Each limb is throbbing lead;
Rather, I
Very much feel, like the
Everyday walking dead.

    I can myself relate to the long term suffering of pain so can sympathise Craig. (Hope you get better soon) This is a great reflection of pain very well done. Much love Milly x

    This is great! I see pain can be a greater influence than I thought! There’s no limits to your imagination Michael :)

    Craig, i am sorry for you, but had you not been suffering, this little gem of an acrostic would not exist. So good man for taking one for the team!

    Well done, Michael

      I hate the phrase "taking one for the team" Lol

      Joking aside it's doing my nut in. Can't even ride my Yamaha. Can't ride my mountain bike either, but that's because some (insert expletives) stole it at the weekend
