Throwback Friday, Hidden Irritations, by Ivor Steven

A short poem I wrote in October 2019, which I posted this morning on “Go Dog Go Cafe” >> http://godoggocafe.com/2022/12/02/throwback-friday-hidden-irritations-by-ivor-steven/


Hidden Irritations (Revised)



Splinters under the skin

Little wounds so thin

Do inwardly sting

And the crying children sing

From under a comforting wing

“Mom, please remove this thing”

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.
