Being Sick (National Poetry Writing Month 2019 #19)   Leave a comment

Coughing up a cacophony
Body feeling achy
Lungs bucking like a pony
Knees getting shaky

Head pounding like a drummer
Mind getting hazy
Being sick is a bummer
At least I can be lazy

Simple (National Poetry Writing Month 2018 #19)   Leave a comment

A simple poem because I am sick
Because my body is being a dick
I’ve been struck with this nasty malaise
Leaving my mind in a cloudy haze
I feel I can barely think
It’s like I’ve had too much to drink
And so I makes this simple rhyme
To get a poem done in time

Sick and Tired (National Poetry Writing Month 2018 #12)   Leave a comment

Sick and tired
Thoughts expired
Mired, drained
Joy restrained
Nausea hits
Eyesight quits
Head explodes
World erodes
Finally creep
To fitful sleep
Floating away
No more today
