Back to counting the days/
To watching the passage of time/
I pray time moves with haste/
To end this disjunction/
Temporary though it may be/
Still, it must end quickly.

My ship makes sail deep into the night/
Your wind to which it must bow/
For all the earth it wanders/
Radiant you make known the sea/
But only your shores I can seek/
Alighted, you are my epiphany.

Months passed, the currents didn’t subside/
Gone were the ocean’s rhythm against the shore/
The interplay between certainty and adventure/
For now, they're swift,
unpredictable currents are out there/
Don’t risk it, stay close to home,/
Where certainty and greater security lodges.

Few days ago the silence comes/
Deafening as any noise/
It is thick and black.
**
I can't penetrate/
I am in a foreign land/
I don't speak his tongue.
**
I don't know at all/
What I did but he is mad/
**
I tried opening/
That closed door, his angry heart/
Still I'm in the dark.

Time is a funny
old thing. You
can't see it,
smell it, touch it or
hear it but as sure as
tick becomes tock
I don't want to escape it. ©moiragallaga

Excellent article, accurately encapsulates what I feel. As the author expains, the medical profession is still grasping at the phenomenon of auto-immune disease. It is a lottery at the moment, getting lucky to find a doctor who understands, but even then there might not be even much that they can do given the complex and interconnected nature of the disease/s. At this time and under current circumstances, the author has it right when she says, "The chronically ill patient has to hold in mind two contradictory modes: insistence on the reality of her disease, and resistance to her own catastrophic fears." > I had an autoimmune disease. Then the disease had me. ‬
