 Poetry Through My Eyes and My World

My Lupus Flare

It approaches like a thief in the night
Suddenly it's there
Making every inch of my body all so tight
I don't have an appetite for anything to eat
Nothing won't stay down
My Lupus flare is so difficult to beat
I hurt so bad & don't know what to do
Pain medication doesn't help
With each flare, I always feel blue
Every joint in my body is unable to bend
They are stiff as a board
All of my planned activities will be put to an end
My face is bright beet red
Already swollen from my steroids
They call it a moon face or so the doctors have said
When will my Lupus flare cease
I just want it over
My immune system could really use the peace
I become totally bed bound
Helplessness soon takes over my body
Fast flowing tears escape my face that is round
I try to explain the pain that I feel
In hopes, someone will listen
Begging & pleading with God in hopes he'll make a deal
With times like this, I wish I could die
It probably wouldn't help
If this were the cure I certainly would try
It approaches like a thief in the night
Suddenly it's there
Making every inch of my body all so tight
My Lupus Flare
