ME

Look at me, what do u see?
A picture of health? You dont see ME
you dont see the pain inside that i feel,
Its all in my head? I assure you its real
Im boring you say because i no longer go out
Do you realise fatigue just knocks me right out?
Im not being lazy or lacking in fun
My legs barely walk so how can i run?
My neck sometimes struggles to carry my head
As the pain makes my body feel something like lead
You roll your eyes when you see with pain i do wince
My explanations still dont convince
My lack of memory is not me being 'dizzy'
Its my illness which makes my brain just too busy
Its not entertainment when i drop things or stumble
Please understand my body's a 'jumble'
Fibro has picked my body to reside
And hides deep, hidden from outside
All i want is for you to believe
And think about this as you turn to leave
I ask you again what do you see?
With a little more effort you WILL see ME

dear pol,. I thought at first that you had written about M.E. (Myalgia Encephalomyelitis) which I also have the joy of possessing, but it was an excellent poem, truly saying it as it is and most of us can identify with it all. Love penfriend

I know exactly what you mean Karen, it's the ignorance of others which make us feel alone and somewhat fake, hallelujah for this forum, it is now my left arm :-) x

penfriend I have just googled Myalgia Encephalomyelitis as I had not heard of it, and saw how much the symptoms matched. I'm glad you liked the poem and I think it helps when you know others are 'with you' on this x love pol x
