Collapsing Body- #Poem #Pain

The drugs deafen my mind

Thoughts jumbled in the darkness

Time drifts to hours

Days to weeks

Clouds fill my mind

Days to weeks

Trying to cloud the pain

But the nerves still spasm

Ripping down my leg

Morphine injected into my veins

Does nothings to dull my screams

Only blinding  my speech

To the reality I live in

Dreaming of freedom

Denied to me right now

Legs refusing to move

Mind unable to function

I drift in endless clouds

Neither waking nor sleeping

Wishing for silence from the pain

Praying for a conscious life

I can come in many labels, many boxes, a divorcee, survivor, traveler, writer, optimist. But these labels only limit me to who I am at this point in time. But as you will read on my blog, I am my journey. I hope you will enjoy walking this path with me.
