Embracing life with chronic pain and illnesses.

Wave Upon Wave

As the waves

Crash upon the shoreline11803762-sea-waves-breaking-on-the-rocks-stock-photo

So the waves

Of pain cascade throughout

Transforming every nerve

Into a volatile eruption

Senses overwhelmed

As spasms wrack an all ready tired frame…

Relentless crashing against the rocks

The waves continue to pound

As a hammer yet without mercy

Pounding and changing the shoreline

Demonstrating such power
As it rewrites the coast line

So with the intensity of pain

Every fibre of our being

Crying out…rather screaming

Albeit a silent scream

Unheard by human ears…1081-1242414452ggmy

Tide pools are hidden

As the waves come in

The tide ever rising

The sand disappearing

Its watery blanket

So the transmission of activity

Nerves not relentingThe grimace…the groan…

The feeling of weakness

The tears that well up

That refuse to fall

Release from the tight grip

Wishful thinking…forcing a bowed head

Prayers for relief

Just the slightest…please…

Waves continue

To batter the shore

The intensity will

It must refrain

This heightened level will not keep

As prayer for strength

To navigate this path…
