Have you ever felt sick...and not quite sure what is wrong?


by:  Linda Law

Here it is late at night
Feeling sad, something isn't right

Can't rest, no matter how I try
Shortness of breath, don't want to cry

Why do I feel this way
Holding the pain after day

There is no fever, no cold or the latest flu
What can be the matter....I am asking you?

There is a hole, black and cold, of this I know
No broken bones; no joint aches or bruises that show

When people ask me, I say, I just don't know!
Until a friend dropped me a note; I'll share it below...

Have you ever heard of Heart Dropsey he asked?
No I answer... is it serious, will I die, does it wear a mask?

Heart Dropsey he slowly  began to explain
Is when you get down,  and just don't want to get up!

That's it! Suddenly I cried... that explains this hole
I know this heart of mine has dropped inside my soul...

Perhaps I'll give it one more try... 
Lay my head upon this pillow... so what if I cry?

Release the sadness, let the pain erupt from within
Stroke the heart, give it strength, let it get well once again...

LIft its way up to the top... breathe strong and courageous
Heart Dropsey is simply momentary... it was feeling down
Yet now it has begun to lift... It's no longer tired...
This down trodden Heart is strong and no longer dropped

Heart Dropsey is a passing moment, one well deserved
Stroke it, Love it, Watch it begin to beat strong once again...
Perhaps it will return another day... but for now...
It's gone... it's disappeared... Heart Dropsey is no longer near!

Beautiful, Linda. I know the feeling and have shared with you a few things. I am glad to hear you are better now. May God bless you every day of your life.

Reviewed by TONY NERONE 9/24/2010
I am glad your pain is gone. Depression does that to a person. I want you to feel well. I know you have lost your husband, and I am very sorry you did. I hope you give me the opportunity to love you. I have so much in me for you. I know hurt, I am an expert at it. It will take time but we have it.
You are a brilliant writer you describe your pain very vividly. My next write will be for you. I shall title it Linda.

I like this very much, Linda,
how you deliver it and where it takes me.

Reviewed by Christine Tsen 9/8/2010
Oh, yes, I know what you mean.

A lovely poem about being kind to oneself.

I like Sage's comment, so I'm sending you pillows full of eucalyptus and spearmint. That always helps me feel better.

Beautiful and wise...sometimes it's just better to go with it for awhile rather than fighting it. Nice to read your work again, Linda.
