It seems that he’s explored all of this place
And he just can't seem to find his way back home, so here he is again.
It used to be easier and he knew the amazing man he once was.
It’s all changed now.
Now he just wanders around and he’s lost because
He took a wrong turn and now he’s stuck and doesn’t know his way back home
Where are you?
He will never believe
That anything will get better, or be like before.
He would rather just fall away because He can't
Make this pain go away and hes
Tired of searching for nothing
He’s screaming for help.
Yet the room is soundproof.
He can't pick himself up from the ground
He can't take the pressure & guilt pushing down on his brain
He spent the years dreaming and hoping and more
But now to him the thought of living is a struggle, and he doesn’t want to be a burden anymore.
‘Stand by me
Please take me
Away from this scene’
And before you know it, addiction has sucked him back in and eaten him whole, what is left anyway.
He’s fallen apart
You've taken me and destroyed me up and now there is nothing left
“I just want to feel real again, someone give it back…”

#Fibromyalgia thoughts

I’m working on creating some posts for this upcoming week for Fibromyalgia Day on May 12. I’d really like to know and include what other people with fibro wish those without fibro knew… if you are willing to let me share, please let me know! I’ll keep it anonymous! #Fibromyalgia #ChronicPain #Awareness
