Macabre Dance
20 April, 2003
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


The silent white noise
Begins to mumble with life
Speaking words I cannot comprehend

Staring into the void of rythems
That moments before was not there
Hypnotized by my surroundings, I fight

Trying to control my mind and body
As it begins to fall from beneath me
The world melting into nothingness

I struggle to remain
Not consentrating on anything
And still consentrating on everything

My mind rushes forward
As everything shifts into it's patterns
Stomach swirling as the darkness fights for control

I fall slowly to the ground
My body mechanically vibrating
In some violent macabre dance with the sidewalk

Slowly subsiding, I lie there wasted
Exhausted, I feel the eyes on me ..yet again
As I struggle to gain composure from their stares

Tired of my reality
Tired of the endless concern
I sleep till once again "normalcy" returns

------- Author's Notes -------

This is my interpretation of a friends description
of living with epilepsy and how it effects her life

Great poem!

Dreamer, I really liked this poem, it seemed sort of exotic to me. Loved it.

Like it! It's very unique....and i think it describes epilepsy pretty darn good and gives those of us who don't have it a good visual (i think that's the word i wanna use)

Good writing Becky! :D

No Words

Truely words for us to know about those that are suffering an affliction
