About the poem

At the moment I am struggling with food intolerances and problems with my stomach – I am almost battling with my physical body, physical frustration and pain with my mental and emotional state.

Wither

By Quiet Sincerity

My stomach has made my bones weak and
my head drunk
My skin is fragile and my hair is
longer

That doesn’t mean I have

stopped yearning for my soul to come
forth and override this being in my
body
a demon in my guts

my body will not wither under this
disease
