Pain Poem.

I have some posts on my PDA to transfer and post, but it's been a rough couple of weeks. Have some bad poetry instead.

* * *

The cloak of pain settles around my shoulders
Weighing me down, tightening my muscles
Fogging my thoughts and distracting my movements.

Another night of trying to find the comfortable spot
The place of least affliction
Toss to one side and squirm
Turn to the other side and sigh
Soft is the pillow and matress
Hard is the suffering of an achey and tired body.

Morning dawns, the pain is still there
It is joined with exhaustion that twirls
Amongst the list of things to do,
The things to finish
The promises owed
The work due
The friends waiting
The bunny wanting food.

The bunny is the easiest to please,
Talk to her, pet her, tell her she's pretty.
Change her little, give her hay and pellets
And perhaps a treat to tide her by.
Watch her nibble in a happy world of yum,
Soothes some pain away.

Stand, stretch, collect the rattle and din of bones
And get on with the day much like the last
A pained shroud, but a smile on face anyway.


  1. Better a live-in bunny friend than a Facebook friend.

  2. Ouch - can't relate, but I have known others with that symptom. I have read a big book - Full Catastrophe Living by Jon Kabat-Zinn - that is based on his work with people who have pretty much exhausted their responsible options for pain management. Maybe something in there. He never mentioned a bunny though! :<) Yay Sage.

  3. A friend of mine introduced me to senscool. After getting rear ended by a car I and
    my husband suffer from back pain. Although the pain is much better after taking
    prescription and over the counter pain medication but it is still there. After using
    senscool both of us get pain relief for at least 4 to 6 hours. It worked miracle for
    us. The best part that got me sold on this product is that all the ingredients are
    natural. This product is now a “must” item in our medicine cabinet. In fact I always
    keep an extra bottle. I applied the gel on my shoulder and was not surprised at all
    as it has the same effect. It helps the muscle relax and has a very cooling effect.
    Senscool should be in every one’s medicine cabinet. Check their website

  4. If I have to use one word to describe the benefit of Dolrx that would be “amazing”.A few months back I noticed swelling in my left wrist. Being a business woman Icould not afford the painful days and nights. I took all the pain medicationavailable in the market but all in vain. After taking Dolrx for 2 days myswellingstarted to subside and I felt much better. In a week time all the swelling was goneand painhad subsided. I am so much sold on this product that I will highlyrecommend it. Please go to and give it a try. You will not regretyour decision. Check with their website
