Failing Me

I feel I am no longer whole

Just a shadow of myself

Broken and worthless

Pieces that are jammed together

But don’t really fit

Like a jigsaw puzzle gone wrong

My body is defying me

And it seems out of control

Every day something new

And it is maddening

Frightening

And sad

A new doctor ahead

A little bit of hope

Maybe a new treatment

Maybe a little bit of me returns
