spilleronsheet

Visit to outside

Year of indoors 

staying in a room 

watching the flat ceiling 

changing its colour 

visit to kitchen and bed 

that became a ritual

 

Days of aloofness 

now the world of mine 

questions when shall you take a peek 

mustering up courage 

one decides to venture out 

what if the germs attack 

the feet stop 

with beating heart inside 

 

alas 

one day 

the time is ripe 

they finally greet the morning starlight 

only to dismay 

the visit to doctor beside 

for a slight fever 

in a curiosity 

what it shall be 

which germ attacks oneself 

 

ahhhh

relief 

Its the changing season 

subsides back to bed 

glaring at the flat roof instead 

few days pass

as receding waves 

days of illness are back again 

now it’s a visit to a dentist instead 

dental affairs start 

with new experiments 

 

shall all the visits be a hospital instead?

    Cor blimey, you been reading my diary mate? This is the boring life i have been living for months due to my health situation. One hopes for better days ahead.

    • spilleronsheet

      Maybe I read yours
      Maybe I read others
      Maybe I read mine
      It’s a boring life
      But the sufferings are most painful and difficult to endure

      Now is the time to get out and spread oneself on society. Or, as my doctor says, send me a picture of your health, and I'll set you free.

      • spilleronsheet

        So true Paul and doctor is really kind

        You got your coat (and hat too maybe?). You getting out more, as they say?! heehee.
        I had to get my coat. I overstayed my welcome at a friend's. Well. I only wanted to show them my 10 albums of holiday pics! Doh!

        • spilleronsheet

          That’s great Orchi…that was a well spend vacation then?

          • orchidee

            Good for me, yes, but to them it was every mind-boring detail! lol. (I made all that bit up. heehee)

            Most of us have been cooped up due to Covid19 for longer than is good for us, I think. Different countries still have different rates of infection, but hopefully we are on the road to some kind of old normality. A good topical write!

            • spilleronsheet

              Thank you so much dear Robert…I dearly hope all is normal soon…we are already on our way there

              lol, I'm sorry
              I couldn't help but find humour in your wry cynicism, of our recent reality's
              absurd hypocrisy
              (if we don't laugh-away
              our frustrations;
              we cry, engulfed
              by our infuriation)...
              such a relatable write, thanks for sharing!
              really liked these lines:
              'alas
              one day
              the time is ripe
              they finally greet the morning starlight
              only to dismay
              the visit to doctor beside
              for a slight fever
              in a curiosity
              what it shall be
              which germ attacks oneself

              ahhhh
              relief
              Its the changing season

                Thank you so much Mek
                You got me, in pain I can cry or I can laugh at the situation around
                I have been crying for so long that my tears dried so now I recount and write
                There are many who are suffering more yet they have started looking at the bright side
                Then why shouldn’t I adjust my view of glasses….
                Thank you so much dear Mek
                I am rejoiced that you liked it
                Much appreciated

                Wow, spills, this is amazing. Gosh the picture paints a million words in this one. Brilliant.

                • spilleronsheet

                  Thank you Teddy
                  This is the feel that has got me since covid times….now visit to outside is just when I feel wrong
                  The dreams are still afar
                  And I am struggling to fight for my dream

                  • Teddy.15

                    we are all fighting for dreams Spills, you will get there, we all will. x

                    Let each tear drop of yours turn to wonderful poetry. Poetry is a an expression of Emotions when felt very deeply !! So keep writing, because everyone is not a poet !!

                    • spilleronsheet

                      That’s a very special comment dear Vamsi
                      Let every tear of mine ruin the sheets
                      Let every blood make a scene
                      With those tears in eyes and blood dripping from sides create a beautiful painting
                      For others to admire
                      For others to criticise
                      For others to rejoice
                      For closed ones to cry
                      Acknowledging the broken heart of mine

                      • Vamsi Sudha

                        Dear Spiller ,every line of yours there is poetry. You were selected by God for making this world beautiful with your poetry ...And poetry flows ONLY ONLY when there is extreme pain, extreme love !! So be happy that we are the selected lot !!! 🙂
                        So not to look back at closed doors of life, because there are so many doors ahead to be opened, waiting for you.. Life has so much to give, keep waiting for brighter rays of Life !!!

                        We have survived. Thank you for sharing your poem.

                          Such an emotive write spilleronsheet. To be trapped inside for so long is mindbending. I have always though on how fortunate I am in being able to go out every day into the wonder of Nature, (and croquet of course).
                          I hope all is well with you soon and the glory of the outside comes back.

                            To coin a phrase, you have just writ the tooth the whole tooth and nothing but the tooth ............ or very nearly .... maybe ...................... am coming down with cabin fever methinks 🙂
