pain a poem discribiing how I feel

Quietly dreaming of thoughts so bright
When sharp images start to fight
Waking to pain so deep
I can no longer sleep
I try to move
I need to prove
I can get past the pain to stand up right
But this will take more than all my might
To take my mind from dark to light
To stand and move to walk
Even speech is hard but I need to talk
Catching Words between breaths with effort so great
To stand, for that I have to wait
For the courage I have to create
Standing sending Waves of agony crearing
Thought my body searing
Feeling muscles cramping
Like people stamping
Waves of white hot pain
Taking my body again and again
The courage I need to move
How can I sooth
The agony that moving will make
From the moment that I wake
From dawn to dusk
The pain will be so great
Gaining momentum as it gets late
Swelling skin splitting
Whilst even sitting
Never ending for ever increasing
The need to medication MST slow releasing
Unable to think
To move to even get a drink
Pain that I can’t describe
Tearing at me from the inside
Cramping tearing clawing
And this is only the morning
Searing white hot cutting though me like a knife
Have I got this for the rest of my life?
Everything takes so long
I have to be strong
I can’t let it beat me
I can’t let my family see me
Struggling trying so hard
Why was I dealt this card?
Forty more years of this
I wonder if it’s worth it what would I miss
More pain
With nothing to gain
Dark thoughts cloud my mind
A way to survive I need to find
I cannot bear
For my children to think I don’t care
To be there as they grow
My grandchildren I want to know
How can I do this?
Why me
Why me
My old self I miss
The happy mum of four
I can’t be that any more
I fail do even a simple choir
Oh how I implore
To be normal once more
Feeling so old
Feeling so cold
Gone is all that I was once
What is left?
What I am I to do
To get through
To live my life
With pain that cuts like a knife
Never giving
Yet I must go on living
