Five Minute Friday: Hands

Trigger warning for references to assault

Hands

age spotted
work roughened
grease still under the finger nails

No matter how far I come, I can't forget the hands

soft, delicate fingers
stubborn in their force
perfect French nails

I look at my own hands, swollen yet again as my joints ache from the simple act of typing.

demanding
insistent
taking what was mine

Hands hurt. They grab and thrust and pinch and slap. Hands leave bruises in tender young flesh.

Linking up with  Lisa-Jo Baker @ Five Minute Friday where we write unscripted, unedited for 5 minutes and link up.
