A Blood Test Cometh (Haiku)

Palms sweat, stomach churns,
‘This won’t hurt, sit back, relax
Just one little prick’.

Words to soothe no doubt,
Veins hide, refuse to surface
One jab, two, then three.

The room spins, head swims
Darkness overcomes my mind
I’m drifting, falling.

Catch me, lead me home,
This fasting is a killer,
Bacon Butty please!

coffee and bacon

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Aw – hope it goes well – and just think of the reward! šŸ™‚

  2. Can so identify. There’s one technician at my doc that somehow managed to hit the vein first time and coax enough blood out…I’ll let others go ahead of me and wait until he’s available, but he was on vacation last time. Oh, dear – should have rescheduled.
