Phantom Pains

by cassie hughes   Sep 16, 2020


The ache never leaves,
a constant reminder
of what is lost.
Cut off,
discarded like rotten wood
but the pain remains.
A phantom,
Lingering on the edge of reason,
never giving peace
just the memory
of a useless limb
excised.

Written to the prompt 'Phantom'

    Love the ending here. 'Excised' is the perfect choice and I love how it sits alone for greater impact.
