Reliving

Reliving brain bleeding navinspoetry

I’m reliving tonight the old story
New details but absolutely no flooring
My scene isn’t sharp coz it’s very blurry
Looking downstairs is difficult, it’s pretty scary
Struggling with balance, so I walk slowly
Small explosions in my head are kinda crazy
So I pack my things while I’m so thirsty
Coz I’ve called the number & I’m quite ready

My face is stiff like skintight denim
Ambulance is on it way, it’s soon comin’
Paramedics popping questions & I’m up summing
Suffocated behind mask but I’m still breathing
No energy in me, I just wanna slip in
Driving to hospital, ambulance is reaching the drive-in
Thoughts are running while I’m buckled & resting
Am I on my way to get a new bleeding?

2.5 day later I found out (after tests, scanning & examinations), there were no signs of new bleeding.

  4. A poem that resonated with me strongly Navin … a journey I have lived through …
    PAIN:
    Who’s Left to Row the Boat

    The storms are too many to count
    Emotional lows had weathered me out
    Her journey with MS was a struggle
    How much lower could our lives sink

    After fourteen years of our battles, I suffered a Stroke
    An ambulance came, my brain was in a boat
    Floating out to sea, overboard and panic-stricken
    I wasn’t swimming, barely awake, and drifting
    I had fallen, nothing was working, and not talking
    She’s crying, I’m sobbing, my heart is dying
    And who’s left to row the boat, I’m thinking
    I was jabbed with a needle and silently sleeping

    I awoke a day later, in hospital, feeling wasted
    My face was limp, mouth parched, was that death I tasted
    My mind was active, I thought, where is she
    I knew I was bad; the room was all blurry to me
    Strong anxieties had set in, I needed to know
    Nurses came to me, I pleaded, I wanted to go
    “Help me to see her, just give my bed a tow
    Please let me go, before I’m covered in snow”

    1. What a beautiful, painful & heartfelt poem of yours, Ivor….what a journey you’ve gone through….I truly believe, there’s alwats deeper reason of every single moment….journey….experiences….it tells & teaches us, which we sometimes don’t understand right away….much love & light 🙏❤️
