Give me strength!
I just came to realise that the zombie housemate was away,
And simultaneously they were back,
I was just ready to go outside and enjoy the sun,
Whilst cooking some food,
When they walked through the door;
I broke my nocturnal routine,
But now again I’m back in hiding,
That person just makes me shudder,
Makes me cringe from inside out¹;
I tried to make a Dr appointment again,
So I can ask them to write me a letter²,
But there’s just so much demand,
They never have a spare minute;
I daren’t ask what the estimated timescale is,
And I’m so stressed with feeling so limited and obstructed,
I just need the space and the time,
To take things step by step;
I’ve been working on fixing my scooter,
And I need the ability to relax,
The constant on-and-off stressful moments,
Are just too demotivating;
I just need to keep finding my ways,
To get through this period—
No matter if it’s summer or winter by the end,
I’ll deal with it and enjoy it,
And really begin to flourish,
Just so long as I’m not here…!
