Fibromyalgia Poems

Feel Like a Zombie

Some days I feel like I’m in a horror movie

I’m a zombie just about alive but not quite

Somehow able to put one foot in front of the other

Even though I don’t understand how

My body has shut down but somehow I’m still here

I’m alive and breathing and that’s all that matters

I make it through a minute at a time

Wondering whether my body will collapse

My brain is mush and my eyes are glazed

Staring into the distance shuffling towards my target

Towards my bed to fall down in a heap

To close my eyes and repeat for another day
