Fibro is a (Huge) Pain!I cried out, “Please help me,I can’t do this alone!”But did anyone answer?Nah! Much easier to postponeOr, better still, ignore the criesAnd not listen to the fussThat silly woman with fibro makes …What’s it got to do with us?Well, let me tell you something, friendsNext time you get a pain –I live with that – all day long –It never does refrainIt’s not just like a twinge or twitchThat an ‘Asprin’ will then quellIt’s a total body blinding acheThat hurts like bloody hell!And, as if that’s not enough – there’s more! –Plus, such ‘white noise’ in my headI truly do believe sometimes thatI’d be much better off if dead!
Swapping Shades of BlueThe sun’s been playing peek-a-booBehind sad-faced clouds all afternoon:One of them was distinctively a mermaidRiding on the sky’s crystal blue waves –Clearly in the wrong place, just like meBut perhaps she doesn’t like the seaAny more than I care for my life andSo maybe she decided to make a changeOnce and for all – to simply go for it!Swapping aquamarine for pale sky-blueThe trouble is, one shade of blue isMuch like anotherAnd, ultimately, you’re still blue
ImprisonedImprisoned by commitmentLong worn out with strifeI long to break freeAnd start a new lifeBut I’m trapped in a bodyWith a mind that is deepAnd the walls that need climbingAre simply too steepPerhaps I’ll be rescuedBy a knight on a steedWho can go on his wayWhen I’ve the freedom I need
End of The TunnelLosing all in the midst of darkness,Where there appears to beNo light at the end of the tunnelIn an endless pit of loneliness,Creates the place most shun in fear,Knowing that the mind feeds onIts own insecurities and inhibitionsAnd keeps the inky black locked inThey’re terrified there is no return …But they’re wrong – you can slowlyClimb up the sides of oppression andReach the safer banks of reason,Although sometimes the edges are steepAnd you cannot help but slip and fallBack a few times beforeYour foothold is strong enough toFinally pull you out for goodAnd return you to sanity
Think Again!You think you know me very wellYou think I’ll fall for every trickYou think I’m just a pushoverYou think I won’t get sick …Of all the lies you’ve told to meOf all the things you doneOf all the claims you’ve madeOf all the times you’ve wonWell, you’re not winning any moreYou’ll have no more to gain …Still think you know me very well?Then please - just think again!
We've Never Done This Together ...An awkward moment when our eyes meetAnd we both know we are just momentsFrom surrender …We’ve been friends for a long timeAnd yet not known each other at allIt’s time for a proper meeting …Yet we both feel suddenly shyAnd unsure despite our mature yearsBut one of us has to take charge …I’m so glad it’s youI honestly didn’t know how to progressAnd needed someone to lead …This change of relationshipInto such wanted intimacy easesOnwards to the ecstasy we deserve …I’ve longed for this momentSince forever, but nervously knowingWe’ve never done this before …I can’t help but feel guiltyAs I know we really shouldn’tBe doing this sort of thing …I honestly had forgottenJust how lovely – and decedent –And deliciously-forbidden …Eating luxury ice creams can be!
