Feeling better after a brief period of illness.

What a feeling

To come out of it

As if someone was reeling

You a mile a minute

 

Today you may stand

Tomorrow, who knows?

Your nerves may band

In illness, they let go

 

Shaken, you hold on

To reality’s structure

But even that affect your bone

Slicing time to fractures

 

So where are you now

In this zone of heaven’s hell

To everything you bow

Yet it is better to leave than dwell

 

Reality takes on another guise

And you wake to its difference

Reality offers to you its prize

It’s time for you to go the distance

 

Because you discover

That everything you knew is new

It was just undercover

It’s a crime and the suspect is you

 

Awake, the words redressed

And now you have a new set of heels

Illness can make you supressed

A cure makes sure you know how reality deals
