Trapped Nerve…

You simply don’t expect it.
It happens so quickly:

A button pressed, bone on nerve,
Then shock, pain, quite suddenly,
Like voltage through wires,
Fan out from shoulder, sickly,
Through neck, along arm to hand,
With a pervading, venomous verve.

Then the limb throbs and aches,
Every single movement takes
The breath, in agony, away:
The body’s equilibrium astray…

And it happens so quickly,
You simply don’t expect it…

It really does cause severe discomfort...
