Today

Today I am feeling worn and tired.
Today I am feeling heavy, weighted.
I will stay out of the pool today despite
The cities high heat. I might drown.

This disease trips me up from time to time.
It reminds me that life is not forever. It’s language is burdensome, I only pause to listen every once in awhile like you do with the stranger who sits beside you on your way home from work. You turn their way, not to listen but only to see the light of day fading. Their conversation spills into your thoughts of those days before the management of pain and fatigue.

Today I am chasing sleep. I want fairies to dance above me sprinkling shimmering gold dust containing a remedy for life, but only on days like today when I am not able to be myself..
