Nerve impulses race
Agony seems immortal
Minutes become years
Wretched body might endure
Abject spirit surrenders

    Thanks, Abdulrazak. It is easier to write about something when you are experiencing it. : -O

    I can sense the severity of the pain..... nerve twitching and soul shattering! Great Tanka! (Report) Reply

    I have aggravated an old, serious neck injury. The pain is terrible and constant. This will hopefully pass but in the meantime, I am dispirited.
