I felt the needle
Go into my ear.
Ouch, I said
As the blood kept spilling.

You took a gauze
to cover it up
But I looked down and
saw the pool of blood.

Too late, I said
My ear is hurt.
I put my hands up
Trying to contain the pain.

You tried to fix it
But it was too late
My ear was hurt
Your efforts were in vain.
