---Okay, today has been horrible--
*** Ow, The Day Is Done by Meeee****

You know
It's funny
That such a simple
Shattering
Sliver
Of jaw pain
Can make me hurt this much
I mean
Of course
There's smoke in the
Air
Making every breath
I take
Steal my breath
My voice
It's funny
Really
How I can not
Think
At all
I try to smile
A failed attempt
As my
Face crumples
Into a pile of
Live misery
An ugly grimace
I am nauseous
My stomach wants meat
But I can't
Have it
Not yet
And I'm wheezing
And I'm hungry
And I'm hurting
But if you
think about it
It's funny
When a cigarette becomes
An air filter
As I wash dryly
Walking along
The pavement
Craving a drink
I'm just so tired
Emotionally,
A wreck
Physically,
The Titanic
Sinking
Shining
Drown me
I'm drowning in al the nights
Up late
Barely sleeping
As the stars fade to dust
Recklessly rusting away
My time
And
I am
Not ready for what's
Looming
A bright shadow
In the smoke
It chokes me
Broken pieces are
Fake falling
On the floor
Please someone
Stand here
Take my hand
Lead me to sanity
Away from
Halogen
Hallucinated dream
I don't know what's happening
Understanding is
Opposite of
What I have
Been feeling
And there are nights where it all becomes too much
Cause and effect
Never trust me
With my
Body

Ferretbandit, That was beautifully descriptive. I'm sorry you're having such a bad day today, actually couple of weeks now. I was hoping you'd be feeling better somewhat by now. Sending you hugs & saying a prayer you'll feel better soon than you do now! (((Hugs))) 🙂💕🙏🌼
