Fibromyalgia Poems

Someone to Listen

This miracle treatment will cure you

You just need to exercise more

Maybe you’re intolerant to everything

Just be more healthy and you’ll be fine

Oh you’re just being lazy

You’re so moany and dramatic

It can’t be that bad

You don’t look ill

It could be a stranger

Or someone you know

Someone you care about

And you thought cared about you

The list of unnecessary comments goes on

There are endless possibilities

What insult will you receive next?

It’s a not so lucky draw

All I want is someone to listen

Not to judge or make comments

But just to be there when I need them

To look after me when I need it most
