Throbbing tension stabs
Ache subsides then crests again
Needfully head held in hands
Yearning for anguish to end
A Tanka for Colleen’s Tuesday challenge (yes I know its Sunday)…the week’s demands have not allowed me to give this challenge any time until now. I wrote this as a haiku after experiencing a migraine, another repercussion of the week’s stress! Realised I could shift it to a Tanka and take on the challenge, which requires the use of synonyms for ‘eager’ and ‘hope’, I chose ‘needfully’ and ‘yearning’.
