Owl Poetry & Prose


Pain. Pain knows no respite…

Or so it feels these days

It’s been one endless rollercoaster with mere pauses in between

I have little energy left for hope

Hope that there would be better days

My heaving chest cough reminds me of this hope

How I wish it for myself

I am honestly sick of being sick

It’s been one thing after another

Either it’s my body or it’s my mind

Food poisoning to Covid to more food poisoning to this

A miserable cough after years

Gosh it’s on a mission to heave and deal

Everything I have not let out in years

It’s like my immune system is on super alert mode

It’s been battling and battling and honestly I am just tired

Tired of everything

Just wish I could have some respite

From this misery, from family, from work

All things that just add more pain

I honestly wish at times

For rest eternal, even if it not may be my time
