physical pain, minute by minute

It sneaks upon me like a cat in the dark
it toys and dances with my emotions and my heart
It reaches out with it’s long sharp fangs
and it slithers a little closer..only to feel the sharp pangs

It lingers and lurks around every door
Sometimes I imagine that it’s prescence is gone
Sadly, the moment I try to move freely
the demon reminds me that it’s grip is still strong

I try to strengthen my will with words and thoughts of rest
but no matter how much I resist
it’s strength will soon consume my soul
and soon I shall be put to the test

I bow my head, i’m on my knees
I can no longer overcome
the darkness closes in on me
and weak I shall become

The tears begin to caress my cheeks
I feel weak and lost and alone
The beast begins to chant it’s praise
and my soul can’t find it’s way home

A flicker of light I see up ahead
my soul is awakened with hope
I can only pray that it’s the angel I see
and for a moment….I can cope

Artist's Description

I have a back injury and sometimes it hard to explain to people what I experience because it’s invisible. So I just wrote this little piece to try to explain my life pretty much from day to day, sometimes from one moment to the next. These are not words of religion, but possibly spiritual to me.
