Requiem for Wonder Woman

Reached for basic black today

red, blue and gold hang untouched in the closet

lasso of truth forlorn in the corner

too heavy for tired arms

outlines of a plane

just visible in the driveway

covered in fine layer of dust

world feels like it is moving on without me

blur of color, smells and sound

that overwhelmed senses cannot process

rest my head against my fists

allow a moment of mourning

for shattered illusion

of invincibility

spine of steel

requiem for a wonder woman

forced to accept that

she is only human

after all

    Fibromyalgia is not a trash can diagnosis, people. The effects of the this illness reach far beyond physical pain. If you know someone living with Fibromyalgia, be kind to them. You don’t have to understand, and we don’t expect you to. We just want you to believe us, and love us.
