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

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

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