Frozen in pain

you call my name

and whimper

in mortal fright

as I draw near

its worse

than I fear

and I shudder

at the sight

of your tolerance,


and your physical


God forbid

something really

goes wrong

all the pain

you've been avoiding

is waiting


deep in

the memory

of night

    This sounds like a "she or he cried wolf too many times" (I hope I am following) but forgive me if I am not. Great word play though and beautifully written. Voted up
