Sticks and Stones

Sticks and Stones

I go to bed every night with The Stones. This week they are doing things to my body that only they can do. They move me in ways that bring me to tears. I writhe from them, moan from them and scream from them. They tell me its because I really rock.

Sticks and stones
May break my bones
These demons rage inside me

Through searing pain
They torment again
Once again they’ve tried me

Jagged edges drill their way
Wreaking havoc as they play
Assaulting, charging, attacking bringing me down

Mocking laugh, heard through my cries
My world disabled as my sanity dies
This week my banner is pain and tears my crown

I think that fate was a little too attentive to me from time to time in my childhood. Like many children, one of my mantras was the infamous “sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me.” Says who????? STONES FREAKING KILL!!!!! You put up with them as they wind their way through your body and then they go and stab you in the back. (Really, that is what it feels like.) This last one has left me the gift of now knowing what a nasty kidney infection feels like. Wow. An experience like no other.

Ok – done with my self-pity, venting session. There is a bright side to all of this.. really.. Being off my feet this ENTIRE week has given me time to write and write and write.. It is a gift to be cocooned in my bed, laptop on my belly and just have reading and writing as my only pastime. I can’t say it is like a mini vacation, but I can say that the time to read some of the awesome blogs I have come across this week and to be able to share some of my life and heart has been awesome.

Love and blessings..
