Poem: recovery – 08/11/21

dastardly distress
growing more
not less
unless there is a pathway being chosen
is this a test?
to make healthier of the situation
lightness has already occurred
consumption is the ammunition
there is time
there is time
to fix
this part of life.

complications may have soared
if I continued the way I had
eyes wide
sagging complexion
beauty, is this, dear woman?

I do not know
but I need to learn balance
it’s a difficult way to dance
pirouetting is what I desire
not sinking because I’m allowing
myself under.

control, control
in its finest form
everything documented
taken in
and jotted down
I guess obsession is easy
to develop
when I’ve the personality like mine

but wind back,
wind back the clock
develop new, fresh, safer habits
with time.  
just learn the research,
I tell myself,
and you’ll be fine.
