Let me absorb your pain (Flash Fiction55)

My dear one -You are so petite and sensitive

When you are in pain your body writhes

I cringe when I hear you cry

You are my sweetheart

I love you

I hate knowing that you are hurting

Come let me wrap my arms around you

Sink into me and let me absorb your pain


My little dog Ginger is so tender. When she is in pain she yelps.

With all she has endured, by being a street dog, who knows what is ailing her.

I hold her and comfort her until the shuddering subsides.

Come join us fro more Flash Fiction in 55 words – at the G-Man’s place

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  3. Sweet little doggies. Precious friends who want only to love and be loved.

    I am off to hug ours now. The elder, Peach, is almost 13 years old, fluffy little gal with lots of life her!
    Off to hug!!

    nice to meet your 55!


  4. you know, i love that this is vague enough that it can apply to many types of relationships. you wrote it for your pet but i thought of a mother and child. i’m sure others could fit it to their circumstance. very nicely done.


  5. Yes some nights our dog has what feels like nightmares so we hold her until she relaxes and snores. If you want to hear (yes hear!) or read my Friday 55 Flash fiction then click here. Hope you have a good weekend!


  6. O this is so beautiful! Instantly I thought of our collie dog Shari many years ago! She was terrified of people (we rescued her from a pound!) We even had to teach her to enjoy a walk! The only way was to let her walk between us so that she felt protected! Several years later we took in a little jack russell we called Minka. And Minka taught Shari how to play!
