Pain – a poem (second try)

Since the first version seems to have mysteriously vanished from the previous post, here is the reconstructed version (similar but probably not identical to the original) – this will teach me not to keep copies!!

pain spikes
an indrawn breath
a shout above the background noise
needles through my flesh

and I
breathe in

enduring as always
waiting
for it to pass
