Poem: The Thorn

The Thorn (by L. Hashim 10 Jan. 2009)

I have a thorn in my hand - that cannot be pulled out
no matter which way I turn - there is nothing but doubt

ache without pain - deaf, dumb and blind
cannot get away - cannot leave it behind

all lies exposed - the bare ugly truth
the thorn in my hand - is really a tooth

bit by the creature - that feeds off my soul
where once was a heart - now exists just a hole
