All my grief says the same thing— this isn't how it's supposed to be. And the world laughs, holds my hope by my throat, says: but this is how it is.

All my grief says the same thing - this isn't how it's supposed to be. And the world laughs, holds my hope by my throat, and says: but this is how it is.

Hello! Do you have any poems about the body in pain/chronic pain or something about the body not acting like it should? like growing up i've had a lot of problems with my bone structure, scoliosis, my jaw growing towards the side, etc and it feels like either the body is either attacking me or trying to grow into something unique and beyond human and i thought that there must be something along those lines? anything would help tbh, tysm♥️
hi anon! thank you for your very polite request. here are some poems about chronic pain & feeling alienated from your body. i hope this isn’t too personal but as someone with chronic health issues i find a lot of solace in poetry, & i hope that you can find yourself in these poems, too.
Max Ritvo, “Cachexia” | Today I woke up in my body / and wasn’t that body anymore.
Danez Smith, “sometimes i wish i felt the side effects” | i know what it is / to nurse a thing you want to kill / but can’t. you learn to love it.
Fortesa Latifi, “the cancer diagnosis” | even the most normal of things can betray you- / sunlight; salt; the air between words; your body.
Fortesa Latifi, “chronic illness” | I am always begging my body not to be so broken / but my body just laughs because it knows who started / this war.
Alex Lemon, “I Knew You Before You Were” | This fevered life: illness & love, / Lockjaw & slow motion kidnappings—it is what / It always is—chronic dying
William Fargarson, “Upon Receiving My Inheritance” | Thank You bones some days I can’t sit up / without crying some days I can’t sit up at all
Hieu Minh Nguyen, “Type II” | I ask for all the ways I can remain / whole & not a vision with missing limbs.
Cynthia Huntington, “Multiple Sclerosis” | I said: muscle, weakness, numbness, fatigue. / I said vertigo, neuritis, lesion, spasm. / Remission. Progression. Recurrence. Deficit.
