Written in support of all who live with Fibromyalgia. 4.5% of the UK population has Fibro, which translates to between 1.2 and 2.7 million people in the UK alone.
Sometimes I write as my eyes close with exhaustion….
on the edge of two worlds, I am.
Frequently I’m dragged by an army
of elves who tug at my brain.
As if pulling all the plugs,
draining blood from my head into the ether,
I am swallowed up, as if liquid.
No focus or thinking,
only sliding into le petite eclipse of reality.
Am I deluded,
trying to stay awake when in fact,
I should have been sleeping
in a hermit’s hollow, warm and silent……?
How good it would be
to leap up out of my fibromyalgic fog
and seize the deliciousness of the daytime dream………
