Burn

I sit idly watching the heat rise through her body. It’s 4 am and the fire has been burning throughout the night.

Attempts have been made but without sleep the resistance is fading.

Her temperature is too much,  she won’t take panadol.  Tired and emotional, I’ll watch her sleep and pray she doesn’t burn.

    My lil darling has been running a high temp all night, she won’t take panadol but cannot sleep for longer than 25 minutes at a time. It’s 4 am and the fire rages on. Daddy’s all but burnt out while prayer seems to be his daughter’s only option.
