I finally got some sleep
But I truly just need to be able to eat
You see lately my stomach has been off beat
After I eat back up my esophagus the food creeps
And then pours out of me like an enormous leak
I’ve lost over 40lbs in the past few weeks
I cant stand this bodily deceit I look so normal yet am so weak
I need a short reprieve soon, hopefully this week
So I can get out of this hospital now that would be a treat!
I awoke today covered in sweat
with a BP so high it’s like a death threat
I can’t stand my clothes being so damn wet
I just want to be comfortable again but that seems impossible yet.
These nurses are very kind and caring
They don’t ignore the call bells when they’re blaring
I appreciate that since I get what I need on time
The job they’ve done for me is absolutely sublime
I still feel like I’m in a prison though at least in my mind
My mental fortitude wanes each day, this is truly a grind.
