Index – A

Abdomen, feeling deep within
Abuse, emotionally neglected
Aching feet, walking away
Acupuncture, pierced through the heart
Ageing, hoping that time will heal
Anatomy, heart aches
Anxiety, without self worth
Arms, none to hold
Arthritis, old pains flare

Day 12 of NaPoWriMo is an index poem.  Basically I opened up a book on the shelf and started to jot down words from the index.  I threw in some phrases associated with each and then a poem formed in front of me.

My first attempt didn’t go as well, but I continued to refine it until I got something that I thought might work.  The book was one on massage basics.
