Thank you for thinking of me

Thank you for thinking of me


But it won’t ease the pain

That I am dealing with


It won’t make this suffering go away


Won’t it limit me in my everyday?


It truly does


And I want to scream at the world


I was fortunate enough


To not have to think about accessibility needs

at my every step

prior to recently


But now it’s all I can see


And think


Is there an escalator


An elevator perhaps


Anything to make this pain less deafening.


Like a wave crashing again the open ocean


And now I’m being swept off the shore of the people


Oh how I long to go back to that beach where people roam freely


Instead here I am


Googling knee braces

and how to fix this


There shouldn’t be a need for diy pain lessening


And now it’s back to deafening


I can’t hear anything beyond the “I’m sorry ‘s you have to deal with this” or the “How can I help you?’s”


When I don’t even know why this is happening in the first place


This no name secret agent is working against me


Sending fucking enemies along my legs, knees and hips


And I’m just trying to find a sanctuary


Please for the love of god


Can someone tell me why this god forsaken pain has to be chronic.


With its flare ups for no apparent reasons and


Not one super-efficient cure and


Most of all a loss of the normal


Thank you for thinking of me


But I think you should give it a rest


Cause nothing can save me
