chills aches fever

cough up gunk from my tired lungs be still oh my soul keep eyes open

eyes closed too tired no point be still head under blanket avoid responsibilities fever swallow pills feel better nap again and again miss work miss blogging miss living

lay on floor watch audrey hepburn movies try not to cry cough more sleep more energy to watch videos and sleep only be still oh my soul and remember happier days more pills

find energy to walk and eat and talk

sleep fever

coffee with friends quieter than usual but out of pyjamas go to work dizzy from earache push on doctor visits pharmacy pills

work and the gym and reading and writing


I've been sick for the past few weeks after Japan, but I'm better now. What's life like for you?


  1. Man, it's been a while since I've felt like this but it's always a terrible feeling.

    I've only managed to stop a cough this week but I do have to deal with a slightly prolonged sore throat. I'll get better soon, though!

    1. I'm glad it's been a while since you've been sick, it's never a fun experience.

      I hope you fix your cough and get back to normal!

  2. You always appreciate your healthy body when you are sick, you don't realise what you had until it's gone. Such a good poem!
