Read it slowly, feeling the sensations!
It all happened in a SECOND!
Vision obscured, engulfed in pitch black
What else do you expect?
When your eyes are shut like that!
The back of my hand,
Yelped and squealed in pain.
Were a hundred sharp needles inserted at once?
Or the Basilisk had jabbed its poisonous fangs!
Was that an electric wire?
Or thunder had just kissed my hand
My veins, once so full of blood
Appeared to drizzle out drop by drop…
Was I freezing or melting?
My mind had no inkling!
One SECOND seemed to stretch for an hour
Caves of my eyelids opened their mouth
To take in the despicable sight
Painted on the retina of my eye
The balloon of my pride lay popped
Since, finally I’d become the quarry
Of the black monster, fancied by none!
My hand jerked & wriggled out of its iron grip.
A ruddy fresh bubble oozing out of my skin…
For me, it was nothing short of SURPRISE
After all, I’d endured this year’s FIRST mosquito bite!

So, now you know what had happened! 😂😂😂
You’re invited to share your experiences with these little friends who inhabit the Earth with us! It’s not that I fancy them very much but can’t make myself detest them either! It’s in their nature to suck blood and the best we can do is to protect ourselves from their nasty bites.
Well, I hope you’ll have a good day without discovering one perching on your skin!😀😂
