No Longer Well

You push yourself

hard

too hard

Then you break down

pain

in much pain

It is not just a matter of

healing

and getting better

This illness is now chronic

debilitating

and will never leave

How can you live with this

alone

and not able to do

the things you used to

Friends may or may not

understand

as you become isolated and alone
