Pain Free!

There is something marvelous about no pain.
My back/shoulder/elbow have been without pain for three weeks.
Granted I am feeling a twinge in my elbow but I know what the cause of it is and how to deal with it.
Yesterday as I was speeding around work I realized just how great I felt.
NO pain.
WICKED good mood.
LAUGHTER resounding.
SMILES on everyone’s face.
My mask yesterday was my blue one with the tongue sticking out.
It is identical to my pink just the color is different.
And as usual I was told to put my tongue back in several times.
And as usual everyone who looked at or talked to me smiled.
Save for a few but they are heartless drones who do not know how to have fun.
Gotta feel sorry for those people.
Yesterday hot flashes returned with a vengeance.
Although in part that may have been the fluffy socks that I had mistakenly worn to work.
Thought it was chillier than it was.
Dumb Jay.
Hot feet mean hotter hotness.
A couple of times I was wiping sweat from my brow.
I have gotten so good at spotting that tell tale rush of initial heat so I can get my sweater off.
When I haven’t people know.
I become increasingly redder and redder.
Then like in those old commercials where you would see temp rising higher and higher well when the red subsides I get whiter and whiter.
Bet you never thought that that was possible.
I mean how does a white girl get whiter?
How is that possible?
This is something that I have spent a long time trying to figure out.
From Spring til Fall I am in the sun and get increasingly darker and darker.
More so than anyone else in our family.
Yet while everyone remains human during the winter months I convert to an albino vampire.
I am not intending to offend either the albino or vampire communities but lordy I am worse than death warmed over.
Snow banks have more color than I do.
Wear white?
Only if I want to look like a ghost.
Pain free.
Not going to be doing any cartwheels because falling on my face would probably cause myself some hurt.
Makes a girl giddy with excitement to realize that once more there is full mobility and no pain.
No pain.
NO PAIN!
It is Thursday everyone.
Nigh on the weekend soon.
Have a terrific day all!

Perception of Insanity

How can they judge me?
How can they say I am the problem?
I thought this was a safe world
a place where children could be innocent
where dreams where not crushed 
shredded beneath
trampling feet
stomp 
stomp
stomp
heart wrenched 
straight from chest
held high
a trophy
offered 
to gods of sin
of debauchery 
of pain
of violence
whilst 
shuddering I lay
dying 
upon Pan’s altar.
Noose 
slung high above
hauled
hoisted 
upon your petard
devil in disguise
laughter 
rings out
echoing bells
underlined
screams 
yours
not mine
as I dance
as I laugh…..
Welcome here 
take a seat
I have kept it warm
devil’s bride
demon’s ride
come
let’s start to play.
