Il (Invisibly Ill)

Listening to silence

Words erase in the maelstrom

Somnambulant sensations

Disappearing days

Semblance of normalcy

Pantomimed ways

Reacting

Retracting

Distracting

extracting

a memory of health

to cover

the invisibly ill

    For those melancholy days. What I have noticed; being invisibly ill means people forget, and get upset when they are let down. It also means it feels like you are fighting the illness alone. Writing, is good therapy, and makes the invisible seen. Shining light on the invisible, means you do not have to deal with it alone. You have a nice flow to your poem. Time is what we make of it, shine light where you can!

      Thanks, Alan. You know how it can be. Some days are better than others. It’s the moments where things are better that I cherish and just do my best on the days when things aren’t so great. I just try to smile when it’s at it’s worst. It dissipates gradually.
