Pain (c) Kevin Jones 2021.
What is this pain tearing me in two?
It is really bad I would not wish it on you.
My stomach is aching so very bad,
It affects my mood and makes me sad.
I need a dose of painkiller to ease the passage through,
I am sure after a good night’s sleep I will feel as good as new.
I need to stop the spasms so that the pain can ease,
The only relief I can get is drawing up my knees.
Confined as I am in this small room,
Like being encased in a medical tomb.
Outside the world is bustling around,
Whilst I am going further into the ground.
Today I needed help and support,
But everyone’s life seems so busy and fraught.
I end up supporting them whilst my pain I solitarily fight.
It is relentless – there day and night.
Tomorrow is another day,
And things will change either way.
I am looking forward to being pain free,
Then you will see the best of me.
