Hidden In My Blind Spot

February 24, 2013 — 5 Comments

I’m in the hospital: been since
Thursday, the day
my body packed on
seven pounds in two
days.  Med. Staff scurry like Lillyputians
upon sleeping Gulliver; all rubber-gloved
hands on deck!  Your charge: bee-line
to Admitting forthwith.  Cardiac
Floor has custody; such largess traded
for freedom; headboard resembles
cockpit; heart monitor spies
on any movement: feels like house
arrest.

My body threatens
my brain: both had breakdowns
mirroring the other: breakdowns
are my blind spot; mental
and physical illness collapse
beneath rubble of well-being’s
bombardment by remediless
disease.

A short while ago
my brain and my heart
were bright with promise
and smart with life’s storyline.
Today however, I can be found
in the scratch and dent
discounted department.

    I know you’re thinking the worst but DON’T. Stress is not going to be helping. Rest and take each moment as it comes. -hugs-

    As recent as today. I recall a time when rare meant valuable. Not in medicine. Rare means lack of research which means lack of treatment. it’s hard hearing words like routine, and hospital, and shortened. Thanks for your concern.

    Ugh. :( Is this recent? I hope it’s nothing serious.
