A cold

#317 A Cold

It creeped up on me
when I least expected it
it started with a tickle
at the back of my throat
before I knew it
I couldn’t breathe
I wanted to sneeze
no amount of tissues
could ease my discomfort
my voice was distorted
when I spoke it hurt
I wanted to curl up
into a ball
and stay in bed
they would report
it was only a cold
wait for me to get better
send comfort
in cards and letters
wishing I would get better
