@valeriemw I was thinking of it too literally at first, but metaphorically, this is brilliant.
Reminded me of my bout of chicken-pox and especially the feeling of being isolated.
I am saving you other poems for later :-).
Thankyou for the confidence and determination Sharing you stories and leaving your mark on our minds. God Bless;)
Amazing, this first poem takes me back to when I had the chicken pox as a child, being kept in the dark for days on end. Wonderful piece of writing!!!!
wow.. It's a very, very good poem. You really deserve to win. A hundred claps for you:)
Very nice. The part about the lamppost being the way in and the way out made me shiver.
