What It's Like: A Personal Story of Suffering - Lewy

by Janice Veldman


Seems like a reasonable name
Probably would invite him in

He came in alright

Entered my brain
Moved things around a bit
so he could fit

That wasn’t working too well
He needed more room
 He killed what was in his way

Didn’t pack a suitcase
 He takes what he needs

I need these brain cells to
Think, speak, use my muscles
His presence removes those abilities

He is a thief
He is a killer
