MS is an unnerving disease
I feel like a jumble of loose, unattached parts
like a sackful of detached, separate and separating parts
a connect-the-dots portrait
I feel like I'm at the seashore with the sand disappearing from beneath
as the tide roll out.
I have tides within my body. They speak to me in Morse code, all dashes
dots, telling me what ?
tides rage within me
The ebbing and flowing within
