Where Did I Go: A Poem of Lost Dreams

via Daily Prompt: Thwart

It’s another day and I awaken yet again in pain and utter exhaustion.

My eyes and heart are heavy and my mind unclear. Pain robs me of another night’s sleep and threatens to thwart the day’s plans, life’s dreams and my heart’s desires.

My suffering leads to feelings of  hopelessness, then hopelessness to numbness. I am miserable, yet empty, as if I am no person at all. I can do nothing and give nothing.

Where Did I Go? When did I fade away, and when did I let this wretched illness consume me?

Time to fight again and again, if necessary, till I win and pain loses its fiery grip on me. And I will find my way back to enjoying life, by the grace of God.
