Wound Up – A Quadrille

Wound Up

My nerves were 
so tightly wound 
one sound of dissention
would make me jump
from my shivering skin
Your words, as always
hateful and cruel
were like salt poured
in an open wound
Stinging and painful
Fearing the worst
I escape before
finally snapping

Lillian is hosting Monday Quadrille at D'Verse Poets tonight
She has prompted us with Homographs.  A word that, although spelled
the same, has two different meanings depending on how it is spoken.
The word she has asked us to use is "Wound".  We can use it once 
or twice showing both meanings.
