I write blogs describing my experiences in my Bodyscapes sessions. Sometimes, there is nothing I can share that is as insightful and meaning filled as a piece of writing created by a client. Here is, My Incurable Life ,by Lois Poblitz. Her accompanying drawing titled, Cage of Hell, is a visual representation of living with an incurable disease.
My Incurable Life by Lois Poblitz
I live in a world filled with pain. From a migraine to visual perception being refrained including my intense emotional ties, relentless without pity, I beleive some of the lies.
My body that is hopeless, confused and alone in solitary confinement down to my bones. Oh, right side, give me a break. It is not right to always take.
I’ve worked with words that opened my eyes. Pain on right side that does not contain the heart of my being that I need to refrain. I thought I was strong; incurable disease. Am I a victim of medical lies?
Incurable, hope deferred, abandoned by my useless self. Having past hope, desperate-a goner myself.
Why do I question rude remarks toward me?
Emotional pity, be gone! Set me free!
