ME Poetry

It’s Not You, It’s M.E.

It’s Not You, It’s M.E. When we first started outWide eyed at the coming yearsWe were so strongWe just bowled alongNo worries, no cares, no fears. Now times have changedWe’re growing apartBody and soulIt’s breaking my heart It’s such a sad fact,You no longer reactTo what I want to doYou don’t hear my wordsIt’s just […]

M.E. And My List

M.E. And My List The eyes they slowly openA restless night behindSleep didn’t want to come my wayTo rest my buzzing mind I gently rise to find my feetHope the strength is there to greetMy legs like stilts, …..no feelingI fall,…… to stare up at the ceiling It’s gonna be another dayWhere M.E. has its […]

The Guilt Of M.E.

The Guilt of M.E. When the beast descends we know the scoreStrength and hope go through the floorWe’ve all been on this road beforeAnother day of guilt Want to take my part in lifeWant to spend some time with wifeWant to cause no further strifeAnother day of guilt Said I’d try and meet with friendsMissed […]

My M.E. Storm

MY M.E. STORM I can feel the storm clouds formingAll around my headI should have stopped my ‘doing’And rested more instead. The soft patter of the raindropsThat turn into a thudMy mind then slows as the downpour growsTurning every thought to mud. My scrambled brainIs like thundering rainI cower from the merest lightLike a laser […]

Millions Missing

Millions Missing Tommy missing from the five a sidesA different postman todayJenny not out, not seen her aboutMaybe she’s just gone away No Mary at the BingoCharlie, where is that guy?Rang the teacher, couldn’t reach herDidn’t think to wonder why Jack from the pubHayley down at the clubMy barber’s missing tooWhat’s going on, where have […]

Help The Millions Missing

Help The Millions Missing Have you heard of the Millions MissingHave you heard the newsSurely they’ve been on the radioLooking for any clues Have you heard of the Millions MissingPeople just gone amissNo longer turning up for workGone down some abyss Have you heard of the Millions MissingIt’s not something they’d suppressYou can’t have people […]

Fog And M.E.

Fog And M.E. In a car when fog descends Lights go on to see the bends Other dangers illuminated A flick of a switch, clarity created An M.E. fog is not the same It wraps around our words, our brain There is no switch, no helpful light Just confusion, loneliness and fright An M.E. symptom […]

A Little Health Reminder….

  M.E. MOT Woke up today It’s not gone away This beast, it’s here for good Thought maybe a dream But a nightmare it seems I’d sleep through it all if I could As another day dawns There’s something more going on The pain’s a bit harder to stand It’s tougher to face, when it’s […]

Stick With It…….

    STICK WITH IT….. In life we like to fit right in To mix in with the crowd Not to shout, not stand out Not to be too loud But sometimes things just come along That force us into change I’m talking Chronic Illness Making life so strange When M.E. hits, it hits you […]

The Guilt Of ME

  The Guilt of ME When the beast descends we know the score Strength and hope go through the floor We’ve all been on this road before Another day of guilt Want to take my part in life Want to spend some time with wife Want to cause no further strife Another day of guilt […]

My Diary And ME

My Diary And ME Busy days, life’s ablaze Diary’s full to the brim So much that I want to do But can’t fit everything in Hectic sport and social life Days out with daughter and wife Coaching football, archery session Being taught a badminton lesson Then an entry when not feeling good Turned down invitation, […]

A Picture Of ME

  A Picture Of ME In my mind there is a picture That fades some more each day It shows how my life used to be Before M.E. came to stay A picture full of colour Of fun, of laughs, of life Not of where I am today Of worries, pain, of strife My picture […]

A Letter To ME

    A Letter To ME I want to write a letter To me of years ago To tell me of what’s coming up To tell me what’s in store If this was really possible Where then would I start How do I say, what’s coming my way How do I break my heart Do […]

Fatigue And ME

Fatigue And ME I have a worry on my mind That spins my head around It causes grief, it’s beyond belief And an answer must be found It’s about a word that’s used a lot A word filled with intrigue Not beat, not weary, not tired or wired But that bleedin’ word fatigue ! It’s […]
