Poem-Unwelcome Visitor


                                                                  Unwelcome Visitor

                                                                         © 2014
The day started the night before
Runny nose, watery eyes, sneezing
Burning throat, congested nasal passages
Painful swallowing
Having the chills

It was the night before
Listless! Sweaty and drenched clothes
Tossing and turning throughout most of the night
Excess mucus
Red, swollen eyes

It was the night that would never end
Laboured breathing
Pain and aches-everywhere
Coughing-Incessantly
It is the morning after the night before.
