Moments of torture




...this is a drawing Linda made last night, of the pain and torment her body is in.

How do I describe
the lonliness
of this illness
the never-ending
barrier
that separates me
from everything
absolutely nothing
is experienced
or received
normally
no touch feels right
no voice is guaranteed
to be heard accurately
no action is definitely possible
in any one moment
How can I live with this
torment of wrong sensation
and misinformation ?
Everyday it gets harder
