 Reflections of My Heart

The Storm Within

 The Storm Within

 This is what Hyperthyroidism/Hypothyroidism
did while getting it under control.
The doctor labeled it as Storming...
Quite appropriate title.

This Storm Within
Rages to and fro
First I'm high
Then I'm low

I feel so powerless
When it comes without warning
There is no control
It's like a deep dark haunting

I internally yell
Oh no, not this time
You rob my happiness
Like a vicious crime

Never knowing
When it will hit
Throwing me into
A major storm fit

Everything intensifies
To a million from one
This inner screaming battle
Just cant be won

I go from happiness
And just being me
Then in an instant
A monster I will be

My Tongue is sharp
And cuts like a knife
Then one less person
Is now in my life.

When I feel it approaching
I run into the dark to hide
But somehow, someone finds me
And then leaves my side

I always feel I'm walking
Just two steps from Hell
Oh the storm within
My body viciously dwells

I don't know what to do
Or where to go
When this inner storm
Tosses me to and fro.

It is but God and I
Who face this inner storm
No one else to turn to
To help me find my inner norm

I am lost and helpless
No will of my own
I plea with God
Please, Please take me home

It is now three years later
my Thyroid is gone along with the
frequent reoccurring inner storms
there is the occasional ones now
with my meds being still in the trial
and error period but I finally
for the most part have me back.
Thanks be to God and my good doctors
I am sorry for any hurt I caused
and for those who didn't care enough
to ask why.

ღ God asked me how long I planned on keeping you in my life.
I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...
But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ
