Day 28 – backwards poem

The trickiest thing with this challenge, in my humble opinion, is the punctuation. So rather than struggle for hours/days/weeks to get it perfect, or go for single sentences with full stops, I took some liberties. Do I feel bad? Hell, no!
There is always the darkness
While, inside her aching head,
Like so many times before,
She feels it crushing – pulsing through her veins.
There is uncertainty and
an inherent inability to understand a total block.
There is one conclusion:
A pressure, building inexorably –
Submission, offering
Hope in redemption.
One tiny comfort:
there is always the darkness.
