Art Dali's dreamplaces

Written for all who have chronic suffering


When the bodies unwell
It travels through hell
where it gets its fix
On the river Styx
In waters so putrid
The mind can't get rid
Of the horrific sights
Which lacks all light
That fill its nights
With nought but blight
conjures up nightmares
That cause many scares
As if gore and blood
Pour out in  flood
While the bodies pores
fill with painful sores
Every nerve is taut
While the battle is fought
Every muscle strained
Trying to sustain
As every cell shouts
What its all about
It wants nothing more
than to win the war
But the battle rages
Through life's many stages
As the body unwell
Travels through hell!

the spirit has the power to soothe ... channel positive energy through the aura and into the body ... stimualte it with strong and focused thoughts ... tell the body "i am getting better" ... hoepfully, it will begin to respond ...

I know of the hell of which you speak, Eileen; have degenerative arthritis. I hate this thing called pain, but I am a lot better off than a lot of people. At least I can walk and work! Very well done; hope you feel better soon!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :(

I know this hell called chronic pain (from fibromyalgia and degenerative arthritis). For one day without pain, I'd be grateful. Don't have insurance, so I have had to learn to live with it. Isn't easy, but with God's help, I manage. :)

An excellent write--very well penned. The voice of experience comes through your words.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

I can relate to this piece written with wonderful rhythm. I hope this isn't written about yourself... if so, I pray healing comes your way. (And now I'm off to read about George.) Thanks for this piece. Too many of us can relate.

I love the rhyme scheme and rhythm here, Eileen. As you know, I can identify with a poem like this. :-) Thank you for posting it, but I hope it doesn't mean your SLE is flaring up badly. Be well. ~~Nordette

ICK! me darlin'... what's up? Now I'm in a quandry: do I tell you how taken I am with the masterful, staccato, rhymes? the absorbing rhythm that tapped my foot, as I screwed up my face with the verbal graphics, yet admired the pure poetry of it all? Sigh

(Is this what comes from those gorgeous men ravishing your person in dark, mossy caves and in rock crevices upon the moonlit beaches?)

How should I know. I just prefer that you NOT be in pain and that you smile again. Whatever the malady, dear heart, it sure isn't messin' with your head. This is great! (unless that means your pain is great... sigh... now what???!!!) You see my dilemma, don't you? (smile) love, katy xox

I hate to see that friends have to go thru this, but unfortunately we can do little more than sit on the sidelines and cheer when you feel better and boo when you feel badly again...I will be wishing for alot more cheering in your case...Ed & rufuz (Ruffie sends licky kisses to help you to feel better)

You have descibed Hell. It is lonely and contant pain for pain.
