I gotta stop.


Blood exuded from cuticles. It crawled down my fingers, reaching the palm; I close my fist tighter to bleed more, pressing harder. A sharp pain surges into my brain, I’m conscious and vain. It tastes sour, this blood of mine; I hear the rain and it’s half past nine.

Dinner is served.

    Dinner was good? 😊
    The pain from cut finger is better, it’s physical, it’s temporary and you also know when the pain will get better.
    Not so for a wounded heart..

        Exactly what’s happening with physical pain here. I had a shoulder pain. Then two days ago I had a fall and I hope I haven’t broken my back. Back hurts so much, shoulder pain is almost not there. 😅

            Awww. :)) Thanks Bharath. That is so kind. But I guess it’s within ourselves we the wisdom find. :))) All of us with help from each other, of course. (There must be a Beatles song for this. 🤓🤗🎶)

              Oh man. I love this. I think we’ve invented a new or old game. I was thinking Octopus’s Garden actually (was my mom’s last favourite)… but I just watched In My Life on youtube and what a great series of beatles clips… the part where the four of them fall backward like starfish or angels into the snow, in a row, gazing at the sky from a mountaintop. Beauty. Yes.. and now, “I feel fine.” :)) Thanks nephew. :)) Hugs and love, Auntie Fool On the Hill. Or maybe Eggwoman. 😇😁🤗😚🙏🎶
