Fibromyalgia Life – Poem

A poem by myself, I am no poet but these words came from somewhere, so I shared them. As I sit in agony, there ain't a lot I can do

Another day of pain in my mind it feels like rain

The strain of pain develops inside me daily

I have nowhere to run and nowhere to turn

I am stuck alone with this demonic pain

~~

I try to show love and be a good man but it’s hard

The pain can turn me the other way, makes me bark

I sometimes ask how I get past each minute with hell

In reality it’s about getting past a day, I don’t know how

~~

My body burns as my mind is tangled with thoughts

The thoughts take me to places I don’t want to go

I have no control, none of us do, we breath the pain

I made my pain a friend, let it in and allowed it’s truth

~~

I am done fighting this pain, so I opened the door

The pain is me and I am it, we are one on a journey

A journey is a journey no matter where we decide to go

This journey is a road to nowhere hoping for somewhere

~~

Yeah take another pill it will give you some thrill for a moment

Take the poison and become the monster that you truly hate

Another way to ease the burden is to not be, just be there

Take away the life and become something else, it’s easier

~~

Tormented by invisible pain every day, blinded to life I crave

I sit and watch like a zombie as my life flashed before me

There isn’t a thing I can do, welcome it in and pray for peace

Today was tough, tomorrow will be worse, that’s life

Shaun i'll swap you lives. Serious, a cure will be found and you're young enough to accept same. Mate's sister has same. Terrible. The positive out of your illness is that in a sense it has forced you painfully albeit, to deviate into something you probably didn't realise you'd become really good at. Painfully obvious no pun intended you will continue to pursue this path and i can only wish you all the best. I hate pain and the last time a dentist asked if i wanted an injection to numb the gums before grinding a tooth i thought to myself, "no you stupid woman, stick a crowbar down my throat to take my mind off the tooth." And you have that unwanted pain only a masochist would entertain...only it isn't anywhere within the realms of entertainment by a long shot. Keep writing Shaun and poetry. You're entertaining and one day soon the pain will be gone and you'll come out the other side. Because of your research and probing i reckon you'll be first to know of even a stop gap fill in to alleviate. Cheers my friend to you and yours.

Cheers Riginal.

The Pain is 24/7, wish I could see a painless me. Maybe one day. Just spent another full day in bed.

I try and smile and have fun, for my two Daughters 3 and 5, I have to hide this. Hard, but I have to.

Thanks mate.

Good reply lol

Shaun
