My APS poem

A whole day in bed

Exhausted body and thumping head

No will can wake

This humbled state


A whole day in bed

pretty duvet, lots of red

analysis paralysis !

A bed of worries


A whole day alone

It is so easy to condone

when you don't see

Behind closed doors

Look closer

A whole day alone

Comes to a close again

To suffer pain is,

To prepare for peace


A whole day ahead

I force myself out of this nest of a bed

This secret disease

  • Poetry prompts an emotional response,and know you are not alone.I too love poetry and when i spent 2 weeks in hospital and nearly died.I wrote this poem for my wife who has since died..

    "when I die and go to rest

    I'll leave behind just one request

    No stone so cold lay at my head

    Plant a tree for me


    Scatter my ashes around its base

    Let it florish,and grow in grace

    Beneath its shady


    Sit a while-remember


    I'll not be very far from


    Nor will the love we always knew.

    When,one day,you follow me,perhaps you too,will

    leave a tree.

    Be sure it's planted next to mine,so the branches intertwine.

    Then as they reach up to the sun,my love,they'll be as one"

  • Yours is a truly emotional poem, sad but explores your feelings. I am sorry about the follow on, but you are a natural poet. Write some more.

  • Thank you for your kind words pluto5,I have created many poems and words of wisdom.However since having had many TIA I find it difficult now to compose words.if i ever find some inspiration then i will share it with you.

    best wishes
