ME, CFS, post-viral fatigue;
to the pain in my brain it doesn’t matter – it’s crazy.
Call me what you may,
just don’t call me lazy.
You only see me on my good days;
Never on my bad.
Unless you come to visit me;
Which no one ever does – it makes me sad.
Today will be another day of lonely despair;
But I will keep living … under duress
each tiny flash of simple success.
