Hello Muse

-5 to all stats

28 days
or so they say
my body disconnects from me

I feel as though
my entire being turns into
my enemy

I lose focus
I lose movement
I lose the ability to sleep peacefully

my body seems to plot
to take this opportunity
to stick it to me
“Fuck you!”
it seems to yell at my existence
gleefully plotting my demise

While I just sit here and writhe
hoping that the alternation
of ibuprofen and tylenol
is enough to warrant a few hours
of relief

it’s personal, you see
this struggle between my body
and me
I wait
and this is normal for me
