My Nightmare Before Christmas

Sun, 12/18/2016 - 19:26 -- Rhi760

I stand tall no pain at all

A gust of wind pushes my limb

As my shoulder falls down, almost hitting the ground

My knee folds in n' I reach for him

At the ER I know who they are

They question my reasons, I'm here every season

They give me the wrong pills, I pay their bills

I go home and lay on my back, wondering when I'll reach the right path 

Ehlers Danlos is the diagnosis I waited so long but this is the prognosis

I'm holding myself together already while my ligaments are more like spaghetti

Pins and needles are what I feel the tears drip down and I know its real

A year ago today I was smiling hiking and ready to play

Now thats all I have, the memoy to reminisce those days

I never thought this is where I'd be, Just like Sally tearing at the seams 

This poem is about: 
Me
