Day 11 - Free Write

Final night of being sick I was tired of being in bed - yes that is possible.


Restless

It starts at my finger tips
and calves -
       as if they're expecting
       a quick get away
       or deflection.

I never know what
to do with my hands
       so I draw
       diagrams of how this
       disease can help make
       my life that less
       complicated.

I keep moving my
legs hoping they'll
       wear each other out
       as if rubbing them together
       would burn this feeling
       away

  1. I've changed some meds recently and have been spending a lot more time lying down lately, so I understand the feeling. I also did not realize there was a napowrimo. I've tried NaNoWriMo, and I've /done/ NaBloPoMo (blog).

    1. Hi LuAnn, nice to meet you! Yes, my best friend told me about NaPoWriMo (cause she does the NaNoWriMo). It was still very challenging to write a poem everyday. I'm going to do it again this year.
