No Knowledge

Written by: Barbara Washington

I have no knowledge
why pains in my arms and back
pursues me daily
I try to rise from my bed
but the pain is hard to bare

I lay in my bed
having no understanding
of the pains reason
for making me miserable
whenever I try to walk

Hungry as a bee
seeking flowering nectar
in the summer breeze
low and behold there is none
in this torso racked with pain 

So I retreated
with my leg across my knee
my kindle fire 
munching on honey and oats
until my pains is no more

or at least retreats
deep within my consciousness
numbing my body
from the heat of your anger
making me weary from stress
