Poetry - "The Edge Off" (a double elevenie) #NaPoWriMo Day 23





Day 23:







The Edge Off
by Jennifer Patino


Suffering
consumes, detaches
every thriving organ
throughout living failing systems
Takes

Relief
frees, releases
all heavy chains
within soaring spirit's cage
Gives



Author's Note: I used the optional prompt today. A double elevenie. The title comes from the saying "takes the edge off" and refers to chronic pain and treatment.
